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"

Hey MuhammadMadi,

When you package a project in development, it'll allow you to have access to the console so you can debug and run console commands while testing your game. When you package a game for shipping, it doesn't come with access to the console, so you can't enter the console commands that may be needed to test your game.

Here is some additional documentation on packaging.

In regards to your second question, I must ask you to clarify because I'm not quite sure what the question.

Looking forward to speaking with you further. :)

Hey MuhammadMadi,

Standalone Dedicated Server documentation may be helpful for you with packaging servers. We also have documentation for Dedicated Servers (Windows & Linux). Please review this information and if you have any additional questions, feel free to ask.

In development mode, the compiled project is not redistributable; it will still refer to certain files in the engine folder, and contains debug console^.

In shipping mode, the output can be passed off to run on other computers, but it does not contain the debug console.

^ You may see this as errors on launch referring to internationalization files, etc. from the 'Engine...' folder.

This is incorrect, development builds are fully redistributeable.
