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"

the plugins static lib build from engine source is larger than the one in installed engine

I'm facing some problems when I try to release my plugin in binaries. 1. The user project's .target.cs should override the ShouldUseBuildEnvironment to return true when use my plugin otherwise the package process will fail with "cannot open input file 'project\Plugins\Runtime\myplugin\Binaries\Win64\project-myplugin.lib'" . 2. The static lib of my plugin like UE4-myplugin.lib and UE4-myplugin-Win64-Shipping.lib is too large(almost 50MB) .

For the first one, is there a workaround to avoid forcing the user to change their project's target.cs? or should I change some build configuration?

For the second one, I compare other engine plugins(like UE4-SteamVR-Win64-Shipping) between compiled from source (53.3MB) and installed version(1.19MB). So is there any compile arguments to reduce the size of my static library?

Any clue is welcoming.

Product Version: UE 4.12
