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"


I am really frustrated as we have been trying for the past two days to work on our gaming project but we can't access the same file i use without having to send the file but there is a problem. Its too large as the asset i have on the project, and i cant upload it to github without it being to large as well. SO PLEASE can you provide me some information on what to do so me and my friend can continue working TOGETHER on our project.

My friend and I have been using Source Control using Perforce, which has a checkout system. I would look into Souce Control and see what you can find there.

The best way Is to configure your own source control server.

I´m using SVN server and I work in 2 machines at the same time (work and home) so basically I can continue my work on all machines.

Once you installed and configured your server, is quite simple to use, I prefeer to use it from explorer rather tan inside Unreal engine, as I used it inside UE a long time ago and it had some anoying bugs...

Do you know how to configure a SVN server? try google it and if you have a blocker I can guide you.

Source control is the proper answer. Perforce is what I use as well. You could install perforce server on your machine and provide your friend with your external ip and port, but you will need to port forward in your router. If your not confident about that, you can use a perforce hosting solution like Assembla. There's many websites, some free some not who do this.

But while source control is the best solution, I have generally found it simple and fine to just install google drive and pop your project in there, it will keep it in sync with your friend if he has the project google drive shared to them. However it wont notify you if you are working on the same files and could cause saving issues, so best to communicate lots. a cloud drive is not a pro solution, but its simple and free. Id still go with source control if you can find a solution right for you.
