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"

Open Level Freezes Then Opens Level.

When I open a level the editor freezes then a minute or two later it opens the level. This is really making it difficult to test my new loading screen. It has also crashed multiple times instead of just freezing.

are your levels pretty big and or densely populated? if thats the case then part of the freezing could just be the next level being loaded. this could also be part of why its crashing on you, the process for loading a new level is done while the old level is still open so you could be running into memory problems or running out of other resources. if this is indeed the issue then one solution would be to load a transition level prior to loading the next actual level. a transition level is basically a blank level, nothing in it so it doesnt take much to run it. the transition level could also be where your loading screen would be displayed.

If loading a level takes 2 minutes, then something must be really wrong, especially if an OpenLevel crashes the editor afterwards. If I were you, I'd start by examining the crash message, as it probably points you towards the core of the problem.
