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"

All the steps below would be recommended if nothing else on the other answerhub threads is helping you. https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/201327/lightning-build-failed-swarm-failed-to-kick-off.html

The only way this error was resolved for me was by doing the following steps (hack): 1) On light build got Lightning Build Failed. Swarm Failed to Kick off error 2)create a separate new level 3)put some random assets ,lights and light build 4)Once done open the previous level which gave the error 5)Select all assets in game and press delete - then select (no to all) option 6) Try build again Hope it helps .

Regards
