how to fix Unreal Engine 4 failed to save error
Epic Game’s Unreal Engine is quite a powerhouse. It allows independent developers to build and design quality games with heavy graphics and great visuals. The Engine uses C++ as the core language to implement the logic but also come’s with a Blueprint option for non-coders. As a programmer, it gets quite usual to run into errors and it becomes a vital part of improving your skillset as you learn from mistakes. One of the most common errors in the unreal engine is the ‘failed to save error.’ The error doesn’t allow the user to save the changes made to the asset and halts the progress.
In order to fix the error, it’s important to know when and why the ‘failed to save’ error occurs in Unreal Engine 4. The error occurs when there is more than 1 instance of the Unreal engine running in the background. With more than 1 editor open the Engine simply doesn’t understand what to do and cannot save changes to your project in one instance while ignoring the other.
How to fix the ‘failed to save’ error
It is quite easy and can happen to anyone, one may end up clicking on the editor more than once and unknowingly you have 2 editors open.
In order to fix the ‘failed to save error’ navigate to the taskbar and check if you see two windows of Unreal Engine, shut one of them down and try to save the changes now. If you don’t see another window of the editor open, try checking the task manager and see if you find it there. If you do end the task and that should solve the error for you and voila you can progress ahead with your project happy programming!
