Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Building after 3rd party update.

Hi, it's me again.

I built a newer version of libwebsockets (which is a 3rd party software in UE4), then I put new lib files into proper directory, hit the build button aaaand... the builder said that the target is up to date.

It's building only when I make major changes in library.Build.cs or I remove/add modules in game.Build.cs

I can rebuild the whole engine but it will be to time-consuming.

I was trying to force an error by deleting header file from 3rd party library and the game ran good without an error, so this behaviour might be dangerous.

It is also annoying when someone want to write his own 3rd party software and has to update it often.

The question: Is there a nice way to tell the builder that the library has to be linked again?

You might try to play with UBT command line, you might find way to build only specific portion of code

I found a workoround, it is the safiest if I remove the library intermediate files. Then I'm sure everything is compiled and linked again. Nasty workoround, but I didn't find anything better.
