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"

Sorry you're having problems. We should be able to help, though! Can you attach the full log from the build "Output" window (not the Task/Error window)?

Hi Ozykz. It looks like what might have happened is that you pulled down GitHub code from a different branch (or release) than the downloaded dependencies are for, so there is a mismatch between the engine source code and third party headers. Can you make sure you are using dependencies that go with the branch you have pulled down? For example, if you are using the 4.0 branch (recommended for now), make sure the zip files you downloaded were from the 4.0 release page, not the "latest preview" release page.
