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"

How do I open an Autosave file?

I have lost my game. I was working on it for atleast two months and I tried opening it one day and something did not work and I was confused so I decided to save:( Now, I can't get it back. How do I access a previous UASSET file or a UMAP file?

What you'll need to do is drag those files into your Content folder inside of your project folder. This will allow them to show up in your Content Browser when you start the project.

Have a great day

It should be noted that this technique requires additional steps: Rename the autosave file to remove the suffix "_auto#." Try using "_test." Go to the map folder location in your project, from within Unreal>right-click any file in there. It may give an error "failed to load assets" Now try going to file>open and the autosave file is discoverable in the list of available maps in the content folder.
