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"

Hi Code Core,

Unreal Engine currently only supports Visual Studio 2015. Like Microsoft, we do not recommend using a pre-release version of this software in a development environment, and do not provide any support for problems that may occur. We do hope to have full support for the new version of Visual Studio when Microsoft officially releases it.

You can certainly try it out with the Engine, but keep in mind that you would be exploring uncharted territory without any backup.

Versions 4.12.5 and 4.13.0 of the Engine both support Visual Studio 2015 Update 3. There is also an optional QFE for 4.11.2 that adds support for Update 3 to that version as well.
