Maps have all gone missing!

I’ve tried to reopen a project I had archived and all the maps seem to be missing?

Any ideas on how to fix this?

I’m having so many issues with UE atm!

-are you sure that you have openend the right project?
-can you still see the map files in the content folder
-how do you try to open your map? (are you still not able to find them when you click on file-open map/level) :slight_smile:

Hi Fighter,

Definitely the right project, the maps are in the content folder I can see them in file explorer, I’m using file >> open map to open them!


What error are you getting when you try to open them?

No error, they can’t be seen there’s only one map that can be seen, is there any way to refresh the editor so it recognises my maps.

If I go in project settings to set the default maps some of them are available in the drop down and I can access them from there but then I have to reload the editor each time I want to open a map, so not a good option.

I think I need to somehow refresh the file registry or asset links so it picks up my maps, how can this be done?

Hmm, when you can open them with the project settings, then just open all of them one by one and save them under a different name -> after that you should be abel to see them again (would be the easiest fix) :smiley:

It wont work, now when I set the default map in project settings and save, on reopening I’m just getting an editor crash on opening.

Could you post your crash log? :slight_smile:

How do I attach the log to the forum?

Do I need to email this to you?

I really appreciate the help btw!

Just copy and paste the text from the log into this thread. Just use the code tags or the spoiler tag (without the *):

The text from the log*/CODE]



-what happens when you copy and paste the map into another project - open the map - save it again - copy and paste the saved map into your old project -> test it
-what happens when you choose another version of the engine (e.g 4.16)? (but first of all create a backup of your old project)

Thanks for clarifying!

All the maps in that project are missing, every single one of them.
I’ve managed to open it in 4.15, it seems to work OK, but all my door movers have disappeared, for some reason 4.15 also demands that I need to first click in the viewport with the mouse before it’ll allow keyboard control, is there a way around this?

I also found another thread on answerhub that recommended deleting the saved, intermediate and config files, surprisingly that’s brought the existing project back to life, but the problem it now gives is the player starts off at a very low height (almost submerged in the floor) and it seems to be completely ignoring the maxwalkspeed I’ve set in the levelBP thats critical to my map.

I’d really appreciate some advice on the best way to resolve this and many thanks fighter for taking the time to look through this with us mate, you’re a credit to the forum!

Ok, so now you are able to open the map and all assets are there and correctly placed? (directly create a backup of your project!)

-just move the player start a little bit higher + check if the character is still correctly placed in your character blueprint
-do you get any errors/warnings in your level bueprint? + make sure that you use the correct character blueprint in your gamemode and also that you have assigned the correct gamemode to your map + when you do it with a custom input, make sure that you have assigned the right key to it (project settings - input) + make sure that you use the “set max walk speed” from your charactermovement component (dont know the exact name)

Spoke too soon!

it gave this (105 KB)

when i saved the materials, its now crashing again!!!

Everything seems to be exactly the same, its also throwing up the following errors when I try to adjust the max walkspeed in the mycharacter BP:

Mind you I no longer have a config folder, but how can this be resolved?

You have to make new axis und action inputs -> in your project settings make sure that you have those inputs set (under axis and action input) = they should have the same name as the ones in your blueprint (the event nodes with that yellow warning sign) :slight_smile:
When you dont know how it should look like -> create a new first person template project and there you can see how they should look like

Regarding the crash when you save the materials -> just create a new one and copy + paste the old material into the new one and save it


Thanks for that I’ll give it a shot when I get home.

I’ve managed to upload the failing project, I can send you a link by pm, if you want to have a look, you’ll probably be able to spot something a lot easier than a troubled amateur like me!

Yep, when you like you can send it to me -> but could take a while till I take a look at it (dont have much time during the week) :slight_smile:

Ok thanks for that, I’m having a few connectivity issues myself!

You should have a PM with a link to the project, thanks again for your help!
