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"

The game module 'Tanks' could not be found. Please ensure that this module exists and that it is compiled

I am getting this message :

The game module 'Tanks' could not be found. Please ensure that this module exists and that it is compiled

After I deleted "intermediate" and "Binaries" also under the "source" folder the "tanks" exists so what this error mean and how to fix ??

When I remove "intermediate" and "Binaries" I get this error when I try to build:

Tanks could not be compiled. Try rebuilding from source manually.

I feel that unreal is really so bugy :(

Tanks could not be compiled. Try rebuilding from source manually.

is the message you get if you have a compile error and try to rebuild your project from source.

to get a more useful output try building it from visual studio, where you should get why it doesn't compile

The game module 'Tanks' could not be found. Please ensure that this module exists and that it is compiled

Just a guess but maybe you got the module definition at the beginning of the class wrong

class YOUR_API ATank : public ACharacter

So than you have an error in your source code.I mean the project itself is a "module"
