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 explanation of Projects & Build Targets

I created a new C++ Third Person Starter project, called "MyGame"

When i build the UE4 project in visual studio, depending on the build target i get these files: (inside the "GITHUB\UnrealEngine\Binaries\Win64" folder)

  • UE4Editor.exe

  • UE4Client.exe

  • UE4Server.exe

And when i build the "MyGame" project, i get the following files: (inside the "Projects\MyGame\Binaries\Win64" folder)

  • UE4Editor.exe

  • MyGame.exe


  • What is the difference in all of these files?

  • What command line switches work with which files?

  • Which file & command line do i use when distributing my client?

  • Which file & command line do i use to launch a dedicated server?

We'd love to have more explanations or wiki info on the build targets & how to properly package / distribute / launch them :D
