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"

Run standalone directly from uproject file

Is it possible to run uncooked standalone directly from a uproject file? For example what I would like to do is create a batch file at the project root that would contain this.

 start MyProject.uproject -game

That would allow me to share the project with others without them having to create a shortcut to run a uncooked standalone themselves. Thanks for any help!

Product Version: UE 4.12

You can find all the necessary information in the official documentation.


Running an Uncooked Game from the Command Line

 When running from the command line, you must pass the name of the project you want to run along with the -game switch as arguments.

     1. From a command prompt, navigate to your [LauncherInstall][VersionNumber]\Engine\Binaries\Win64 directory.
     2. Run the UE4Editor.exe passing it the path to the project to run, along with the -game parameter.

UE4Editor.exe "[ProjectPath][ProjectName].uproject" -game

Sorry I should have been more specific. I'm looking for a command to start an uncooked game directly through the uproject file instead of UE4Editor.exe. Does that make sense?

You can do this Overkitty:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Epic Games\Launcher\Engine\Binaries\Win64\UnrealVersionSelector.exe" /game "path_to_your_uproject"
