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"

Editor suddenly really bright / tinted white / bad gamma

alt text

Restarting the editor or even the computer doesn't fix this. Even standalone-launched preview game is affected. How do I fix this?

I am experiencing this but the gamma is VERY low - seemingly happened at random. Any luck troubleshooting this gamma issue further?

For me, changing bit, depth or pass format (don’t remember what exactly) in render settings of the project did it. If I recall correctly, ”float” in one of the settings caused it.

typing 'gamma 2.2' in the editor console fixed this for me, no idea why it changed suddenly but this seems to have fixed issue for me

You've 'obfuscated' so much, I can't see anything, but main suspects are:

1) Using unlit mode

2) Switched from static to stationary or movable skylight

The pixelated parts are irrelevant, the editor itself is bright, and I assume the viewport is just inheriting that. Project seletion window is working as intended, but as soon as I launch a project, it looks like this.

Hmm, that sounds like more of an operating system / video card issue...

I have managed to narrow it down! For some reason, if I set a project’s buffer type to float instead of 8bit, it becomes bright. Is that a known bug or am I experiencing some oddities?

Hmmm, not sure about that...
