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"

Hot Reload. How to use?

Hi, Now before everyone trys to rip me a new one for posting a question similar to 10 others on the answer hub, I have read them all and I still cannot figure out how to get Hot reload to function.

I am using Visual Studio 2013, My Game is the startup project, I am using a prebuilt version of the engine downloaded through the Unreal Engine Launcher ver[4.7 preview 3].

My Game is the same as the C++ Side scrolling 3D template.

All i am trying to do is change the following in my *Character.cpp

GetCharacterMovement()->bOrientRotationToMovement -> true;

I am using this to test hotreload by toggling the boolean. I am in DebugGame Editor for Win64. I have opened the Editor with the -debug flag.

I start off with a recompile of my game, It says in the console [Compiling game modules for hot reload] looks good to me. I then make the boolean change from above. The debugger is not attached at this point, I invoke a build[even a rebuild] either in VS or the editor and it doesnt change the value...

Am I missing something?

Are there some steps i should be taking to get this to work correctly?

Thank you Cathal

This was seemingly a bug in this preview version, Hot reload now functions correctly in 4.8 up
