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"

How to generate a visual studio project file in the mac editor.

Does anyone know if it is possible to create a visual studio project file for UE4 from a mac?

I'll be running visual studio professional in a windows virtual machine using virtualbox.

You will need to run the GenerateProjectFiles.bat script from Windows to generate a Visual Studio project. The Mac will only generate Xcode projects (and vice-versa).

I don't know why you want to do this, as you should use Xcode on OSX, but you might try to run uproject file with UnrealVersionSelector.exe (which you can find in laucher directory) with /projectfiles argument in command line thru your virtualbox, keep in mind this program will need to see both UE4 and VS in windows registry in order to work :p
