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"

Build error with accented characters on file path

Hello, just submitting a bug that is in the latest engine release (4.10.1).

I was trying create and build a new C++ project in the default project location (C:\Users\username\Documents...etc) and I was getting a compile error:

alt text

Turns out it was my Windows username which contains an accented character (André) that was causing this issue. The build system is not escaping it correctly (if you look in the pic you'll see Andr? in the path) and then the compiler can't find the source file.

Changing the project folder to C:\UnrealProjects fixed the problem.

Might be worth looking into this.

Hey andmm-

This is a known issue with special character's in a file path (UE-22616). While this is currently still open, as you mentioned the simplest solution is to create the project in a file location that does not contain special characters.
