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"

packaging the game

What is the standard procedure for packaging the game for max performance! I see there is a menu for packaging in the editor HOWEVER there is also so called build configuration called "shipping" in the Visual studio!

  1. So what does the package menu does? does it compiles the whole game with shipping configuration and then cooks it ? or does it packages it using the same build configuration as the editor?

  2. If I select shipping build configuration and compile what does it actually do? does it removes the code that makes up the editor?

Hi Commander Shepard,

For what platform are you packaging? If it is for Windows, you can't target Win64 in shipping from the binary build. We only support Win64 for development builds, and only support Win32 for shipping. This is functionality that may be changed in a future release to allow for packaging for both via the binary build, but it is as yet unannounced.

Here's some documentation related to general packaging, and here is the AnswerHub thread that addresses shipping builds for Win32.

Good luck!
