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"

Can anyone please help me on the topic? I see this threat has 8 views but no answers so is this impossible in unreal engine? Ive now figured out how to save and load files from my C drive but http links is still not working. Im thinking that the reason could be that the connection to the server cant be made quickly enough so the file on the server doesnt get read in time?? How can i fix this?
