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"

Changing an Engine C++ Class

I'm working with just the regular editor that you download from the Epic Launcher. I'm trying to edit the Character class in the engine c++ content, and I can do this easily enough, but how do I recompile this code? Can I not recompile with the standard editor? Can I only edit engine content if I build from source from Epic's GitHub page?

Product Version: UE 4.13

Hey DFILL450,

You're correct, you can only edit engine content if you are building the engine from source through Github. The binary version from the launcher does not support this, as it is precompiled.

Have a great day
