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"

Can't find a location for Visual Studio or Unreal Engine in file directory.

This is a very newbieish question, and I apologise. But I have googled everything I can think of and looked everywhere, and so I throw myself on your mercy.

Currently, when I try to open visual studio from Unreal Engine, it looks like this. http://imgur.com/gallery/FiCg5 The tab "generate Visual Studio Project" is faded, and I can't click it. I have no idea why.

I definitely have VS installed, because I've got it open right now, and I can find it seperately in my programs folder. I've followed the steps in this tutorial to setup the UnrealVS extension: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Programming/Development/VisualStudioSetup/UnrealVS/index.html. I've restarted Unreal Engine entirely. But nothing changes.

None of it seems to recognise that it's supposed to be part of Unreal Engine, and I can't figure out how to do so. Can someone help? Thanks in advance.

Hey Soft Singularity-

Looking at the screenshot provided, it appears you are using a blueprint based project. If this is the case, what you're seeing is expected. Blueprint project do not have code in them so they don't need a connection to Visual Studio. If you create a new project and select the "Code" heading when selecting a template, the grayed out option you pointed out will instead say "Open Visual Studio". This is also true if you add code to your current project, which will generate code files for the project.
