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"

Disable keyboard shortcut for screen capture after packaging

I my game, I used the key "F9" for stopping the game. I already change the setting in "Keyboard Shortcut" and remove the shortcut key for screenshot.

But after I packaged the project, the function for shortcut screenshot "F9" is still working. Each time I pressed "F9" to stop the game, an image is also captured.

How can I solve this problem?

.. misunderstood at first.

Setting the Packaging option for Distribution should shut out console/debugging keys. Distribution

(It does on my unaltered engine build at any rate)

Thank you for your answer. It solved my problem.

I am just a beginner in Unreal Engine. May I ask when should I check the "For Distribution" checkbox? Except shut out console/debugging keys, it there any different after I check the "For Distribution" checkbox?

Deployment closes out the console to the users and leaves out some other debugging tools in the compile.

It is what you want to use when you are releasing the game to your users - rather than testers.
