Frequently Asked Questions

Expand to view details
  1. Failed when upload models.

You need to compress the model assets into a zip file, and the entry file cannot be nested in a folder. The server will decompress and put it in the ./build/public/Upload/Model folder, and add a record in the MongoDB _Mesh collection.

  1. How to combine multiple models together?

Basic geometry supports multiple levels of nesting. You can add a group (in the geometry menu), and then drag multiple models onto the group in the Hierachy Panel.

  1. How to enable authority?

Edit config.toml and set authority.enabled to true. The default administrator username is admin and the password is 123456.

  1. The brower report asm.js has been disabled because the script debugger is connected. Please disconnect the debugger to enable asm.js. Error.

Complete error: asm.js has been disabled because the script debugger is connected. Please disconnect the debugger to enable asm.js. ammo.js (1,1) SCRIPT1028: SCRIPT1028: Expected identifier, string or number ShadowEditor.js (3948,8) SCRIPT5009: 'Shadow' is not defined.

Solution: Tencent browser does not support ammo.js (WebAssembly) compiled with Emscripten, it is recommended to use Chrome or Firebox instead.

  1. How can I upgrade from C# to golang version?

The data structure and web client is not changed, just copy ./ShadowEditor.Web/Upload/ folder to build/public/Upload/.

  1. The desktop version cannot be opened.

Windows requires Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015. You can install from: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=48145
If the desktop version cannot be opened, you can view logs.txt; if the port conflicts, you can modify the MongoDB and website ports in resources/app/config.toml.

  1. How can I create a https certificate?

Install openssl, and git client already contains one; Open cmd, Powershell or shell, and run the following commands:

openssl genrsa -out privatekey.pem 1024
openssl req -new -key privatekey.pem -out certrequest.csr
openssl x509 -req -in certrequest.csr -signkey privatekey.pem -out certificate.pem

Among the generated files, certificate.pem is the certificate, and privatekey.pem is the key.
