    Will HairWorks and Waveworks be updated for the UnrealEngine 4.16?
    How long does it take to wait?
    We will be grateful for the answer!


      [MENTION=29363]Alexey.Panteleev[/MENTION]: Any news on VXGI release for UE4.16? Thank you.

            The 4.16 branch will actually show 4.17 on splashscreen. I grabbed the source for this build exactly when they isolated their 4.16 work to prepare it for release.

            Also please note that you can't package with this 4.16 branch as it is right now.

            I actually stopped playing with this build in the middle of adding Hairworks to it, it would appears that it's one of the issue preventing proper packaging. I need to remove HairWorks from this build to check and see.
            Would be cool to be able to package with GameWork on 4.16, would "only" need to update to current 4.16 to get it over with.
            Hi. What kind of package issue do you have with HairWorks?

              It's on the way. If you want to get it earlier, please visit here


                Engine\Source\Runtime\Renderer\Private\ShadowRendering.cpp in function: void FProjectedShadowInfo::SetupProjectionStencilMask

                From line 797
                to line 825


                #if WITH_FLEX
                #endif //Flex

                It produce error if not with flex, and the function gets broken because the terminate brackets gets removed from the for or if, really dono what You trying to achieve here.
                Thanks, looks like this got broken during a merge. We're currently refactoring the fluid surface rendering (which is what this change relates to), this should get cleaned up in the next push.

                    Hello, Hairworks wasn't the issue. I just ported the other GameWorks feature to 4.16 2months ago and it was a bit dirty code here and there, while overall failling to package.

                    I did not completely port Hairworks to 4.16, and actually stopped in the middle of the job.

                      [MENTION=649466]Maxime.Dupart[/MENTION] : any plan to add waveworks with the new 4.16 volumetric fog plase ?


                        Please help, I already do not know what to do! Does not want a build. Tried a lot of solutions, but without success. I used this branch ( Can you suggest a solution or a similar branch with Flex + Flow? I have other branches, but not all, through time.
                        Here are my steps:
                        Run Setup.bat, answer "N" when it asks you about overwriting some files - otherwise it will replace new NVAPI libraries with old ones, and UE4 won't build. (But he did not ask me anything.)
                        Run GenerateProjectFiles.bat
                        Open UE4.sln, build UE4 and ShaderCompileWorker projects. I use: Windows 10 Pro 15063.413 and Visual Studio 2013 Ultimate. Thanks in advance.

                          Does casting shadows from Flow components on other objects (or casting shadows on Flow effects) works in recent version? The same question for light: can Flow components reflect light?
                          If any of these works I would be grateful for simple step-by-step guide how to set it



                            I recommend You to.
                            get Visual Studio 2015 for UE4 and libraries compatibility, and project packaging. Install this.
                            get Build Tools 2015 Update 3 The release is also available via a standalone Build Tools 2015 Update 3 installer. Install this.
                            get Windows SDK 8.1 Windows SDK 8.1 if not full instaled in your system.
                            get Windows SDK 10 for new upcomings changes, install this if you want.

                            My advice it's You extract the repo to an folder and run setup.bat normally, and again extract the repo and overwrite the last extracted folder, and do not run the setup.bat after this.

                            Delete all Intermediate folders and Saved folder

                            Generate projects.




                              Anyone having issues with VXGI and VR using the Vive?

                              I notice that on the left eye I have no shadows and on the right eye I have shadows, giving pretty bad results in VR....

                              Is there a solutionj for that, since ( looking around ) I'm not the only one experiencing this issue?
