    Opening a terrain generator blueprint give an error along the lines of "the parent class of this subclass does not exist".
    What about the actual devkit update binaries? You getting those? Make sure you are also adding the "PackageInfo.bin" There is nothign wrong with the files so it must be something with how you are doing it

      Could I get a little assistance with this. This is the first time I have updated my Dev Kit in this fashion and seemed to have missed something. I downloaded the file through Google Drive and copied it to my DevKit folder. When I go in I'm still showing Version247.8 and got the white models of the Dodowyvern. I tried to verify to see if that did anything but I am still showing my old version and no luck with the Dodowyvern. I looked through the Gitbub option but I'm not 100% sure how to go with that route. Normally I just wait for the Devkit to update through the launcher but I really want to mess around with the Dodowyvern.

        [MENTION=464842]Finedragon[/MENTION]: You need BOTH content diff from google drive AND the files from github! One or the other won't work, they belong together. Also if you manually update DON'T do verifying or really anything through the launcher.

        For more detailed instructions please take the time and read this thread. It feels like i wrote this 100 times already This same question comes up at least one or two times after every update and if people would just check back one or two pages the whole thread could be half as long and twice as clear.

          Or... you know... just actually read the entirety of the first part of the post, which is only a couple of lines:

          But that seems to be too much for some people most days...

            Cant compile changes to an function (Generate Terrain) implemented in a child of Simple_TerrainGenerator_BP because variables are marked as private. Click image for larger version

            Temporary solution is to create new variables to use instead of the private ones, but it also means re-implementing any function that uses the variables to use the new ones. Also, I can't be sure that the underlying c++ code will break because they use the original variables.

                  As for the error messages: Those are the "normal" errors you will always get with the kit. So don't worry about them, your update should be fine.

                    Ahh Ok, thank you Mezzow.. in fact I thought it was a "normal thing" - Now there is only the "problem" of not being able to save the level, and/or to cook as a " map ext" with the error who posted Artanys in this page :/

                      So I have tried to cook my map now for 2 weeks and it cant cook it ! 600k worth of shaders to compile and it just wont get passed that before it crashes.

                      My maps been around for a long time and being unable to cook anything since the SE update is kinda going to mean i have to stop modding this game.

                      Any news on a fix for this ?

                        So, when I click the link to Github, I always get "page not found", and when I check both the StudioWildcard profiles, neither of them has any activity ever. Anyone knows what's going on for me?

                          If I remember well... You need to associate both of your profiles " Github and Epicgames " by your own profile section, then you should get a confirmation email by github and clik on the confirmation link on it...

                            Dev kit update with map cooking fix is out, Jeremy forgot to announce it https://github.com/StudioWildcard1/Ark-Dev-Kit and i can confirm the map cooking fix. Times are back to normal. YAY

                              Yeah v248.9 devkit binaries posted to GitHub + if you update the content from the new content link , https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bwk...ew?usp=sharing , it has pre-built shaders as well which should further reduce your map cooking time. Will get it all posted on Epic Launcher later today hopefully as well.

                              Cheers and keep up the great work modders. We will be announcing some really exciting new programs for the Mod community soon this month, stay tuned!

                                Hey, the launcher wants to update but I moved the devkit and arkk to an SSD, and it does not have 115gb of free space. So any idea on how I can update without moving it back to the slow disk?
