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"

Alphas not showing up in material?

So I made this material so that I could input it in a fire particle I'm creating, but unreal keeps filling out what should be the transparency with either white or the same color as my image. I watched a tutorial to see if I was messing something up, and it said I should use a .tga file, and I tried that and it still didn't work. I am confused and distressed, please help.alt text
