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"

Running Standalone Game from Editor doesn't load the Default Game Map

I haven't needed it in a while, but I remember using Standalone Game from the Play menu in editor launching with the default game map (from project settings). It allowed me to test the game from startup (main menu) without having to unload and reload the current level (time consuming) I was working on. This isn't working (4.6 or 4.7). No matter what play mode I use, it always loads the current level from the editor.

I know this works by just opening the default map in the editor, but that's an inconvenience (time) and an issue. The issue is, I can't debug the level blueprint I'm working on, because it closes when I load the main menu level in its place to test.

I'd be surprised to hear that this never worked, because we haven't ever cooked our game to launch it separately yet. If this is still supported, what am I doing wrong?

Thanks Tabs

Same Problem here in 4.16. It's a pain, to always reload the menu map, see you havent fixxed the bug and have to reload the actual map again....

Did someone find a solution to this?

Or do we understand the options in a wrong way?
