UnrealEd 2.0 Video Tutorial now on YouTube

Post by smeerkat » Sun Jan 08, 2017 11:15 pm

Hi everyone, I just uploaded my first video tutorial (building your first room in UnrealEd) : https://youtu.be/YAZ9Wmg4tYo

This replaces the website version that I used to have back in the day. It had about 40 screenshots, so it was easier to just upload a video to YouTube. 8)

My other UnrealEd tutorials can be found in the Wayback Machine: https://web.archive.org/web/20041204005 ... tutorials/

Cool thing! I just wanna add that you can always add regulars lights, no matter what you selected in the Actor Class Browser - which I find more handy. :lol:

I just wantto thank you for your work. I usually don't like Youtube tutorials at all but yours is as good as it can be, it covers a lof of points and you spared us all the "uuuh" and "hmmm" that every other video has and it's refreshing.
You must construct additional pylons.

The Editor is very sensitive and prone to crashing at times - at least in my experiences so far.

I wanted to ask if there were any ini settings that needed changing before you used the editor.

I would recommend to set autosave to 5 minutes or shorter/longer if you need.

But I would also recommend to use the Unreal Editor 2.1 from patch 227 for building the BSP and the UEd2.0 for pathing and lighting and other stuff.
