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"

-winx and -winy no longer working in 4.8

I noticed that in Unreal Engine 4.8 and onward, the command line arguments -winx and -winy, which are used to place the game window in a certain area on the screen, no longer work. I've tested this on a blank project in both a batch file and in a shortcut with no luck.

Product Version: UE 4.8

I've found it to be my monitor set up that is causing the problem due to my card not detecting my second monitor correctly.

Thank you!

Hi Mike -

I have been trying to duplicate this issue and have not had much success. Can you verify that your shortcut and or Batch File uses the following format?

"C:\Users\Eric.Ketchum\Desktop\Packaging Tests\WindowsNoEditor\MyProject.exe" -winx=0 -winy=0 where [C:\Users\Eric.Ketchum\Desktop\Packaging Tests\WindowsNoEditor] is the location of your packaged game

Thank You

I am not running the shortcut from a build of the game. I am running it in editor in game mode (-game).

My shortcut is as follows:

D:\UE4\Engine\Binaries\Win64\UE4Editor.exe "D:\Game\game.uproject" -game -WinX=1920

Hi Mike -

I tired again from a reference to the uproject as you specified above and again did not have any issue? My Format was as follows:

"C:\Program Files\Epic Games\4.8\Engine\Binaries\Win64\UE4Editor.exe" "C:\Users\Eric.Ketchum\Downloads\FlickerTestMM\FlickerTestMM\FlickerTest.uproject" -game -winx=1920 -winy=0

It appears as I expected on the top left of my second monitor.

EDIT: For Reference the line above was in a shortcut and all one line.
