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"

Terrible building times

Hey there. i already read the post about optimizing the compiling/building times, but the solution didnt do any good for me. in fact it seems the building process is not even utilizing more than 20% cpu time. Consequently it takes very long to build, which is really annoying. im talking about building times of >20 minutes. im kind of confused as it was faster when i started using the engine... !?

Having the same problem. Normal builds are taking longer and longer. All I have in my project is 3 standard c++ classes and a 4th class marked up for unreal. All I've done over the last two days is add entries to a 256 item long lookup array (in the 4th class) and tested the entries as I've gone along, and my build times having gone from seconds to about 6 minutes. It has gotten steadily worse. (Total LOC of the whole project is <800).

I'm not sure what all you've tried, but be sure to set your Game project as the Startup Project.

i did that already.

i also included

MinFilesUsingPrecompiledHeaderOverride = 1; bFasterWithoutUnity = true;

in the .Build.cs file.

When you build are you using Build Solution or Rebuild Solution? On that note, do you clean the solution between builds? If so, stop it :)
