Source control SVN login
I have setup source control with SVN to run on my local network, both the repo and the the UE project are on a local cloud server so both my wife and I can work on the same project at the same time.
The problem I have is that when I open the unreal project and login to source control with my username, if she then open the project she will be logged in source control with my username too, if she puts her name and then I reopen ue4 I'll be logged in with her username and so on...
Of course we could just both check that we're logged in with our own username when we open UE4 but it's easy to forget....
What am I missing here ? I tried setting the source control settings in the Editor preference but that doesn't work (it's blank when I reopen the project) how can I set this up so we're always logged in with out own username or at least to have the source control settings to pop up when we open UE4 so we can't forget about it ?
So there could be a couple problems here actually. I've found where the Source Control settings are stored when Use Global Settings isn't set, so the per project settings. You can find them under the Project's directory in Saved/Config/Windows/SourceControlSettings.ini. Try opening this up in Notepad. Is it populated? Try reproducing your issue and see if this .ini changes. If it does, that means this file is being checked into your repository or updated in some way.
If this was the case, make sure that this file isn't part of your repository. If it isn't, one workaround, while we try to find out why it's getting changed, would be to set it to read-only, this would require you to log into source control every time you open the editor as it never gets to save the settings.
