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"

Localization of Ambient Sound?

Hi there, I have language-specific sound effects attatched to some of my actors. Is it possible to localize these sounds?

Essentially we'll be distributing the game in China as-well and I'd love to have the game automatically detect the user's system local and update these ambient sounds on BeginPlay.

Not sure if this is possible from the localization Dashboard? Or would I have to make the user select English/Chinese from the menu?

You can use asset localisation to handle this.

Just create an asset of the same type with the same name as your source asset, but in the L10N/{Culture} folder (in your case L10N/zh). eg) If your asset was /Game/Sounds/MyAmbientSound, you'd create your localised asset as /Game/L10N/zh/Sounds/MyAmbientSound.

Thanks for your help! However, I do not see the L10N folder in my project's directory. I do see it in other projects though.

Is there a way to generate this within the editor? Or should I just create a new folder and name it that?

It might be hidden by your Content Browser view settings. Make sure that "View Options" -> "Show Localized Assets" is selected.

If it's still missing after that then you can just create it, since we don't make it by default. 4.13+ also has an "Asset Localization" content menu option that lets you create a placeholder localized asset for your source asset (note that it just copies the source asset to the correct location within the L10N folder).
