AnswerHub Migrating to the Unreal Engine Forums

Hello,

I have a problem with the website unrealengine.com:
I keep getting logged out several times a day. This is very annoying when you want to read documentation and forum, visit courses or browse the marketplace. What can I do about it?

Btw: To open a new topic was denied or I can’t choose a tag…

It must be here now then, got my brand new profile pic. =P

But did it really happen if you don’t frame it and put it up on your wall too? :thinking:

Feels kinda narcissistic to hang my own logo onto my own wall… Maybe a 3d printed version of the 3D modeled version…

I don’t mean to put the team down, but unless the engine starts working properly the forum/website won’t be seeing increased traffic. MAYBE if UE5 turns out not to be a dud…
So in other words: I’m glad Epic is finally putting someone on the task of answering questions :slight_smile:

Also glad about the avatars :slight_smile:

Wondering what “Site style changes” involves.
I don’t see much of anything but I’m also using a custom dark theme or something I selected initially if I recall correctly. (for all I know, those options went away :P)

Yes, finally! I am so happy! :slight_smile:

I have to admit I did not expect it to happen.

This sounds interesting, I would love to be a part of this support team, especially if its a paid position. Some of the best practice I had learning UE4 was from helping people answer their questions. Are there any certifications needed?

I plan to study everything I can about UE5 and teach it to people, while reporting bugs and helping the community out.

This picture is pretty much guaranteed to boost your mood, if you tune into the color patterns, and the color-shift that occurs in the Unicorn’s horn!

:zap: Second Christmas Gift For You From Rama :zap:, a Song I Composed in Unreal Engine

This is a rendition of 1812 Overture that I created using Unreal Engine, which uses only strings for every instrument track.

So this song was made with UE4 C++, as the UE4 software I wrote to do all this is extremely C++ intensive.

Why only strings?

Because I know Tchaikovsky loved strings the most, and I wanted to pick a single instrument in order to emsure that timbre differences between instruments would not affect the harmonics of the notes combining with each other.

An A6 note on a Tuba is actually different than a A6 note on a violin, because of timbre differences, which are based on the actual materials used to make the music instrument. I wanted all of the actual frequencies themselves, not just the approximate semitone scale values, to precisely line up at the hertz level (atomic level of music), so I use only 1 instrument set for all roles/tracks in the 1812 Overture Finale.

Believe it or not, even the room in which an instrument is played affects the final Harmonics of the note.

By using my own UE4 software, I could negate all differences of timbre and room / recording system of the note, thus ensuring the Purest Possible Harmonics where only the notes are still relevant, staying true to the Original Composer’s intentions of Pure Harmony.

I then precisely tuned the Harmonics of the song using audacity, after quantizing the original midi file using UE4 C++ so that the Harmonics will align properly, like expanding ripples in a pond combining at just the right timings.

The result is a song that will help you to feel Joy :rainbow:, no matter what is going on for you in your life.

You are welcome to share this song with anyone in need,

anyone in need of Joy, which is Pure Harmony :rainbow:

:heart:

Rama

:heart: Happy Holidays Everyone! :heart:

PS: The fastest route to Harmony that I know of is to give someone a compliment. If you give someone a compliment today, I guarantee your day will be better for it!

So it seems that this migration has taken place, but currently those redirects are all just pointing to the index for all forum posts with the “Question” tag. This makes it extremely difficult to actually find the answer you’re looking for — you basically need to use the WaybackMachine or Google’s cached result to find the actual content of the original AnswerHub link. Are there any plans to implement proper redirects to someplace the actual content can be viewed? This is kind of a nightmare for productivity.

Hey @dannymcgee—we’re aware of this issue and are seeking to correct it ASAP. It shouldn’t be redirecting to the overall Q&A experience instead of the specific pages—we’ll circle back as soon as this is fixed!

It seems to be working for me now — that was quick!

Images in posts migrated from AnswerHub appear to be missing, eg:

There were two images in the original post, which are now rendered as dead links to:
https://answers.unrealengine.com/storage/temp/349148-textaliasing.png
https://answers.unrealengine.com/storage/temp/349149-textaliasingoverlay.png

Was the intention to only migrate the post text without the images, or has something gone wrong in the process?

That’s in progress. We have all the images in our archive, but the team has let me know that restoring them may take a couple days.

Hi,

Do you have any update on this? I can’t see the responses to many answered questions due to that :frowning:

Answerhub links are still returning “Oops this page is private or doesn’t exist”

Are there plans to restore images and old answerhub posts in the new forums?

EDIT: if you click through the links on this page, they all go to random pages Viewport flickering

It’s been more than two weeks; any update on this? It’s making a massive amount of content on this forum completely useless.

Would be great if someone could also look into why some of us users who definitely have old enough accounts and level to see content cannot see basic stuff either.

Been having this
“Oops this page is private or doesn’t exist” for idk 6 months+ now and it is getting tiresome.

Hey,

There still seems to be quite some missing images on the forum.
So far from the few threads I have checked it looks like pngs are having an issue being linked in?
all jpgs seem to link and display fine.

Pngs are replaced with a generic transparent image that inherits the size of the original image.

Here is one example. How get the current Steering value of a Vehicle Wheel

The jpgs render, the pngs do not.
Is this something that can be fixed?

As mentioned before it renders alot of threads useless as many answers and hints lay within the images.

The thread above now seems locked so posting here instead. Do you want reports on everything that’s broken or just broken links? This thread is broken and was reported here and here a year ago here but nothing was done. Plus the link here in this post is still broken. The same here. :wink:

Other users are still sending reports but it doesn’t look like the report from @thefoofighter above is going anywhere either. So are you sure you really want reports? :stuck_out_tongue: Overall there’s still too many links or images that are broken in random threads. It seems like posts that were originally linked to ‘upload to server’ images never really got carried over to the new forums. :wink:

This is really great news, I always wanted this kind of community where everything is in one place with a slick and modern user experience.
Can I just ask for a few more options on the colors available, a few more “Dark Mode” shades to customize the site further?
