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"

Perforce corrupts config file encodig

We're having issues with perforce, which we're using through its visual client, P4V.

When editing the DefaultInput.ini locally, it looks completely fine, but as soon as it is submitted to the repo its encoding seems to get corrupted and display in Chinese characters, breaking the file so engine can't read it.

Any idea what could be causing this? Tried saving it both through the engine and notepad++ with correct UTF-8 encoding, nothing helps.

Just had this happen to me...which is strange, first time in over 3+ years of using Perforce in over 30+ projects.

https://soverance.com/perforce-tutorial-corrupted-utf-16-file-content/ found a way around it.

But, I always follow the UE4 Perforce docs/typemap... soooo no idea what the heck happened this time around. And I already committed 80GB to repo lol

This happened to my DefaultGame.ini file!

I don't know what could have caused it. Maybe after I set the copyright text in the Project Settings, which contains the ñ character?
