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"

No finding GenerateProjectFiles.bat in root dir.

The documentation say:

Run the GenerateProjectFiles.bat batch file located in the root directory.

All of the project files and even the UE4 solution are intermediate files - located in [UE4Root]\Engine\Intermediate\ProjectFiles. You must generate them each time you sync a new build to ensure they exist and are up to date. This also means if you delete your Intermediate folder, you must regenerate the project files using the above-mentioned batch file.

Did I miss something? The "GenerateProjectFiles.bat" is nowhere to be found in the root directory.

I'm not exactly sure which doc you are looking at but if you followed the steps for downloading the source from GitHub, the GenerateProjectFiles.bat should be located in the root of the folder you downloaded the src to.

I'm also having trouble locating the GenerateProjectFiles.bat, but I didn't get UE through Git Hub, I installed all the files through the Epic Games Launcher.

Hey Brylonian-

The GenerateProjectFiles.bat file is used to create the .sln for a source engine from GitHub. If you used the Launcher to install a binary version of the engine then you won't have a GenerateProjectFiles.bat.
