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"

Why can't the windows version of unreal package for osx, and the osx version package for windows?

Is it because legal or licensing issues? is the technology not available? If this is considered being implemented can someone suggest a date?

Hi ibayibay,

The reason they're separate is that xcode is need in the process for packaging the OSX version, and VS2013 for Windows Packaging. If you have the source version it may be possible to set up to packaging for the other OS, but you would be on your own to set that up. The functionality to package between OSX and Windows is on the list but when/if has not been specified.

UE4 uses OSX SDK / Cocoa API, and those are not available for windows, so that's one reason why it's not possible to build osx version of the game in windows.
