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"

I can't get git(hub) to work with Source Control

So my (small) team and I need to use Source Control to run effectively as a team. We decided on GitHub and I downloaded the Github Desktop client. Everything went smoothly, I already had a project in Unreal so I built a new repository in the folder using GitHub Desktop and committed the all changes. I then launched Unreal and tried to use the included beta Git plugin. I put in the git.exe directory (took forever to find lol) and then I got a weird error message: "Failed to enable Git Source Control: you need to initialize the project as a Git repository first". I'll admit, I'm a complete noob when it comes to Git (which is why I chose to use GitHub Desktop since it has a UI), but I thought I had just done that...

So after all that, I thought my worst fears had come true, that I'd have to use Git instead. So I deleted the repository from GitHub Desktop, and the .git folder from the project folder and downloaded and installed Git. I fired up the Git and navigated to the project folder (it made miss Linux a little) and ran "git init" and "git add .". I then when to Unreal and tried again. Same error message. I was then struck a mixture with relief that I could actually use GitHub Desktop and frustration that this isn't working. (I know, as a developer, I should be used to the feeling...)

After hours off googling and reattempts including creating new UE4 Projects and Git repos, I gave up and decided to ask the wonderful people of AnswerHub.
