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"

DDC Documentation Example Incorrect

I was setting up a shared Derived Data Cache, reading along with the docs I wasn't able to modify my default remote ddc.

I realize now that the section title in the defaultengine.ini is labeled incorrectly.

as per this page: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/Basics/DerivedDataCache/

The section title should be


But digging about on other websites, I find it's been changed/updated to:


I'm sure other people are having issues with this also, please update it when you get the chance. thanks, Litruv.

Hi Litruv,

Are you saying that [DerivedDataBackendGraph] in the example should be changed to [InstalledDerivedDataBackendGraph]? Can you provide a link to one of the other websites where this is stated?

Hey Steve, http://www.hourences.com/tutorials-ue4-quick-first-tips/

Ctrl+f: Shader Cache

Yeah, nothing seems to override the settings other than [InstalledDerivedDataBackendGraph]

you can run the project with the command line to force the DDC, but it doesn't seem to stick when running the project on its own again.

I think what would be more appropriate is another section for DefaultEngine.ini per project.

I'm yet to test it if it works with the BaseEngine.ini (other than me adding extra defaults that I can use with the command line running the project (really inconvenient)

Hi Litruv,

Thanks for the response. I've entered the following request to have the documentation updated: UEDOC-3563. When this has been addressed we will update this post.
