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"

Code Project Compile for iOS on Windows


to build for iOS on a Windows machine, we enabled remote compiling in UE under project settings, but it did not work. Quits with error "Sorry, packaging a code-based project for the selected platform is currently not supported. This feature may be available in a future release."

Do we need the GitHub / Source version of UE to achieve this or can we just copy over the missing batch files from \Engine\Build\BatchFiles\ into our engine folder? Because we tried it with the binary build download from Epic Launcher without success.

Thanks for your help.

Kind regards, Marcel

Product Version: UE 4.12

Hey pyr0t0n,

This error is simply state that if you are on a Windows machine and want to package a C++ project (any project with a C++ file), you can't. You can however package a Blueprint only project.

If you want to package a C++ project for iOS, you will need to compile on a Mac or setup a SSH connection to remote build on your Mac.

Here is more information on how to setup the SSH Connection to remote build:

Hey Kyle, we had a Mac and did everything to start remote compiling. Enabled remote support on the Mac, setup all for remote compiling in the project settings and got the SSH Key exchange working, but we still get the error message.

Again, do we need the GitHub / Source Version of UE ? Because we tried it with the binary verison downloaded from Epic Games Launcher.

Oh, sorry about that.

Yeah, you will need to get source from GitHub.
