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"

Cross compile for Linux from Windows


I'm trying to package my game for Linux. I'm following steps described here: https://wiki.unrealengine.com/Compiling_For_Linux

So far I've done:

  1. Download the toolchain: v8 clang 3.9.0-based - for UE4 4.14

  2. Set environment variable LINUX_MULTIARCH_ROOT to point toolchain directory.

  3. Click package and pick a Linux.

After that I'm redirected to some outdated UE4 website about packaging game. Did I missed something?

Product Version: UE 4.14

Hey JaroMast-

After setting the environment variables, did you also re-generate project files for your engine? Once you've done this, you should find the Linux option in the solution platform dropdown inside Visual Studio. With this you can compile the project for Linux which should allow the package process to complete successfully.
