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"

Compiled source, checking in to repo for artists, what files?

I've built the source from GitHub on my dev machine, but want to only have the minimum of files checked in for an artist, or anyone else to work off which folders need to be checked into say a Perforce server and which can be omitted?

Thank you,

You do not need to check in the folders cause it is generated by visual studio or the editor:

  • DerivedDataCache

  • Intermediate

  • Saved

And you should also ignore files with the ending .pdb which contain the debug data base. You may checkin the other binary files (or only the DLLs) or decide that your artist has to run his own copy of visual studio to generate those binary files. Well currently I prefer to check-in the DLLs but maybe I will switch this behavior when binaries become to big.

So well thats only my personal experience so far and I just started friday
