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"

Need help setting up Perforce

Hey everyone,

For previous projects I've worked on, I have used Tortoise SVN and a remote server for file repository and versioning purposes. Thankfully, I was not the one in charge of setting up those systems.

Now however, I am leading my on team on a game project and the time has come to set up a file repository. Unfortunately, I have no idea how to do this and could really use some help.

I would like to use Perforce. I currently have some Perforce software downloaded, an empty remote server, and an Unreal Engine 4.8 project.

I have looked at some documentation and tutorials, but I'd really love if someone could walk me through the process step-by-step.



Product Version: UE 4.8

If you want to use your own computer for a server, you need to make sure you have a unique IP, there are ways around this.

The best way IMO, for 5$ a month (for starters you can always go bigger) get a 20gb, 1cpu, 512ram droplet dedicated server from digitalOcean and then follow allars guide. He has an auto perforce installer for new droplets literally one command and done. allarsblog.com/2014/09/25/Setup-Perforce-Digital/

Then all your team-members will need to download the P4V (perforce visual tool) and create a workspace using your droplets IP address and port (1666 stock) and then you and they can connect in UE4 editor using the same IP and credentials as well.

The P4V tool will allow you to make new users but make sure YOUR THE FIRST USER TO LOGIN, it gives the first user to access the depot (the repo) through P4V administrative rights (change acesss limintations, new users etc.)

Hope this helps get you started!
