I had a threat here before where my level didn’t load at all. At this time I have another issue, with the glorious Unreal Engine’s saving mechanisms.
I have added some assets on 28/8 (3 days ago), worked on my level, but when I loaded it today, all those assets from that day are gone. Autosave, backups, nothing worked.
I frankly do not understand why Unreal editor even saves my progress, since it’s completely useless. I do not trust it anymore and every day I have stress that it doesn’t save.
But it doesn’t end here - All the .uassets are present in the project directory. All of them are there, and when I try to create a new material by the same name as before, it says
The asset ‘/Game/EM/Assets/wall_turned/wall_turned_mat’ (wall_turned_mat.uasset) failed to save.
Cancel: Stop saving all assets and return to the editor.
Retry: Attempt to save the asset again.
Continue: Skip saving this asset only.
Warning Asset ‘…/…/…/…/…/Unreal Projects/Demoo 4.9/Content/EM/Assets/wall_turned/wall_turned_mat.uasset’ cannot be saved as it has only been partially loaded
What? Why? Unreal, why? :(.
I tried deleting the uasset files, didn’t help. I tried fixing up redirectories, didn’t help. Ran it in 4.8, 4.9, didn’t help.
I have a pretty decent workstation, and I work on SSD.
