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"

Encrypting/hiding packaged build files?

I'm trying to get a public build of my demo posted online pretty soon, however whenever I package the build, all of my media files show up under the game/content/movies directory. Is there any way to properly hide that from public view?

Product Version: UE 4.10

You should be able to package all the files into .pak files. In the Project - Packaging setting make sure Use Pak File has a check in it.

That should (I have not tested it yet) package everything into a single .pak file or you can break it up into multiple .pak files if you wish.

Use Pak File is enabled by default and as a result hasn't helped. I tried messing around with some of the other packaging settings with no dice. Any more advice?

Are you using Project Launcher to package your projects? If so then the Project - Packaging Settings wont work. You have to manually check Store all content in a single file (UnrealPak) under advanced settings (available when you change cook options to by the book)

I followed your instruction and there is still a game/content/movies directory with all of my media files present.

No, this is not possible right now. Media files are currently packaged separately (all files in Content/Movies are simply copied over).

What is the ETA for this being possible? (Encrypting movies instead of simply copying them over.)

There is no ETA at the moment, but the request is being tracked as UE-44001.
