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"

Moving the 'Unreal Projects' folder?

Is this possible? As it's default location is in the Documents folder which is located on my C: drive. Problem is that the C: drive is on my SSD which is fairly small, so I was wondering if it would be possible to move the Unreal Projects folder.

Thanks in advance.

I have had success with UE3, using a Junction Point to relocate data that the engine is looking for to another location. Basically, install this

Link Shell Extension

and then move your Unreal Project directory wherever you want it to go, then as it says on the page for that utility you can set the new location as the target, and drop a Junction Point back into your original location. As far as the engine is concerned the files are still where it wants them, but they're actually being stored elsewhere. Its still a dirty hack, but it doesn't affect other aspects of your environment.

Thanks for the quick answer. Hopefully this only has to be a temporary Solution.
