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"

perforce won't show newly added assets


I have a problem with perforce. If another user adds a new asset (marks it for add, and then submits it in the depot), it will not show up in unreal on my workspace (it doesn't automatically download from the depot to my workspace). So I have to manually open p4v client, and press get latest revision to download the asset from the depot to my workspace. Is there any other way to tell perforce to automatically get the latest revision when a new asset (or any other file) is created from another collaborator in my team?

what you're describing isn't how P4 works. it always requires a sync before new files are added to your local machine, which would then show up in the editor.

So if I'm understanding correctly, everytime someone other than myself adds a new asset I have to open the p4v client and press "get latest revision".

Yep! There are a lot of things that could go wrong if P4 just started automatically downloading new versions that are checked in or added for the first time. That said, you could write a batch file to sync P4 every day at a certain hour to ensure you have latest...but that really is only helpful if you've got a giant project that takes ages to sync.

Thank you for clearing that up for me. Could you tell me how can I write a batch file that can sync p4 at a certain time?
