Hi all,

I've just started learning the ins and outs of materials within Unreal but have got a problem. When creating a new material, I get to the Shader Properties window where you would usually manipulate your Diffuse, Opacity, Specular layers etc.

When I click on any of the 'Use' buttons within this window, the entire prgram just locks up completely meaning there's very little I can do to manipulate materials within UnrealEd.

I'm currently running UnrealEd V.3 Build [2005-11-23_16.22] on Win XP SP2

Never attempt to assign a material to one of its own properties. Example:
Assigning Shader A (or FinalBlend B that uses Shader A) to Shader A's Diffuse property.

The Use button always assigns the currently selected material. Since you just created a new material it also becomes the currently selected material and when clicking the Use button you create a circular reference causing the editor to crash.

Cool, thanks very much. I've been having a skim through 'Mastering Unreal Technology' by Parrish, Busby & Van Eenwyk and while there's a lot of good stuff in there there's a few things they neglect to mention.

What about removing the same question you posted like 10 times on the other forum and start your own thread?
What a god damn spammer.
