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"

How to build a package without compiling the whole package tools.

Currently, I am using an editor built from source code.

The problem with this is that when I am trying to make a package, the engine automatically compiles the build tool as well.

How can I skip this and use pre-built build tools?

Hi DevKen,

If you're a source build of the engine you'll have to compile the applications needed to build the engine and package it. If you want the binary version with the pre-built files you can get this from the Epic Games Launcher.
