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"

Problem with changing the path of DDC.

When i tried to change the path of DDC to my project folder, it resets. I changed the Engine.ini file, clicked on save, but after some time when I open this ini file to be sure if the setup right, but it resets my changes to default path. Am I doing something wrong? May be there is another file, need to change. Or something. Please, staff, show me step-by-step what i need to do.alt text

I read it before. But I don't understand what that means. I just want to prevent the vanishing of my SSD's memory. I read all questions about this ddc. I can't understand. Which file I need to change to solve it? When i tried to change DDC path in .ini file, it resets the default. What's the reason? Where this configuration file is stored by default, and which lines I need to edit? Help, Rudy.Please)

I also read it. But problem is that there are two BaseEngine.ini files in different locations. But in the forum folks explain that I need to edit base engine ini file which is stored in the Engine/Config folder. Look at the screenshot alt text

You will need to navigate to where you downloaded the engine and go from there. From the pictures provided, I would say that it would be the one on the right. (Epic Games > 4.12 > Engine > Config ). You will then need to change the highlight section in the image below.

And that's all? Will it prevent "vanishing" of SSD's memory? Or do I need to do something else?
