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"

[Closed] Build failed development target not found

I have been trying to get a dedicated server up and running using these instructions


However I am getting an error in the unreal frontend while in the "deploying content" stage

Heres the log:

I'm having the same issue above trying to follow those steps and getting that error. Just tried with the engine source built from the 4.9 release tag.

This really shouldn't be so complicated, can someone streamline this process? There appears to be multiple ways to accomplish building the server all of which involve some 'magic' that the instructions leave out.

EDIT: I had to regenerate my visual studio solution files. That step was skipped as adding C++ classes in step 4 of the guide didn't mention regenerating those (this answer did however). https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/180903/issue-when-building-dedicated-server.html
