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"

Does UE4 support environmental variables to control where UE4 looks and puts content?

It seems that when the editor is launched, it does not show Networked drives. However if you launch it “run as user” and put in the credentials of the exact same user who is currently logged in, it then shows network drives. However it does not show Home drives Env Var %homedrive%. Seems that its launching in an awkward user space, although in Task manager shows it runs in the proper logged in users name space.

We found a temporary fix for those who might be having a similar issue. We are copying the path from Windows and pasting it into the folder path in UE4 during new project creation. It pastes with the drive letter we are using here at the school for our content drives for students. Our instructors will be able to create in class projects and students can do the same on their computer log ins. Everything seems to be running okay. I hope this is something we can expect to be resolved in future patches. Great work on the engine thus far!!
