Is there an issue with UnrealStickfigure2D and the BlankSprite?

I cloned the UnrealStickfigure2D template and every time I try to “Package Project” a version for 64 or 32 bit windows or “Cook Content for Windows” I get the following errors:

I have also tried to Package and Cook a “clean” project running that same template and get the same errors and warnings so this leads me to think it’s an issue with the template and not something I did. I spent some time on the forums reading about similar problems and since it was a clone I tried to “Fix up Redirectors in Folder” and even tried migrating the files to my project but none of this has fixed the warnings or errors. Thank you in advance for your consideration on this issue any suggestions are welcome.

Hello MosFett,

Thank you for submitting a bug report. I have reproduced this issue and logged a report for it here

You can track the report’s status as the issue is reviewed by our development staff. Please be aware that this issue may not be prioritized or fixed soon.

To work around this issue you will need to change a couple of files in the project. Change the names of the files I have highlighted in the image to not include spaces or parenthesis.

Cheers!
