Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

DLC and Include Engine Content

I am using the mobile patching utility and when I choose to "include engine content" it appears to cook it but not package it in to the game.

I have 100+ errors of engine files that should be included in the package via the "Include Engine Content" check box in the DLC settings.

Question 1: Are DLC paks allowed to keep references to the "release" content or will that break things? An example would be the DLC referencing the Game Instance which is included in the Release. I would however not package the Game Instance in the DLC but keep the reference.

Question 2: Is there any way to force ENGINE files in to the Pak? Essentially the opposite of a Pakblacklist. Note that the in editor force options are for content only files.

Question 3: Any other thoughts on the errors below: alt text

Note: My issue sounds very close to the problem posted awhile back at this thread. To quote:

1] - In 4.13 we discovered a different bug related to DLC which has been there all along. The checkbox to "Include Engine Content" for DLC has inverted packaging logic. It either properly cooks but improperly does not package, or it properly does not cook but improperly tries to package.

And lastly - these errors do appear to be making the game crash when I attempt an "Open MapName" after the mount is successful.

Anyone have any thoughts? I am working towards a play test in the next week or two and this issue is stopping me.

At the very least I'm looking for a way to force package certain engine files. As mentioned before the opposite of the PakBlacklist. Instead of forcing files and folders to be removed from the package I would like to force them to be placed in the package.

Turns out the main error causing my game to crash was these two checkboxes. I wanted to lower my package size but it appears this does not work well with DLC content (that I can see at this point). alt text

In the packaging tab...
