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"

Visual Studio unable to Build using Perfoce

Hi, I've setup a Perforce Server (DigitalOcean) and upped our Project to it. The Workflow within the Unreal Editor works flawless. However, as I'm doing C++ things in VS13, I installed the official Perforce Plugin P4VS. I can connect to my Server edit Code and Submit it.

But I can't build the Solution from within VS like I used to do. The error I run into is basically a linker error - none of my .h files seems to can link to their .generated.h files, IntelliSense is saying the same thing. Another link-error is saying that "the /Binaries/Win64/UE4Editor-MyProject.dll can't be opened". If I check said Folder, i can find the .dll file, but I recognized that there isn't any .pdb files like in my other offline Projects.

Saving the Code and then launching the Project off the Epic Launcher works as well as Hot Reloading Code while I am still in the Editor.

It's important to have TypeMap configured before you submit files to perforce. See this: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/Basics/SourceControl/Perforce/index.html

UBT is not connected with perforce, that's why this tool can have problems while accessing your binaries. All binaries should have +w attribute.
