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"

How to exlude Editor from shipping build

Hey everyone! I have Bluetility C++ script which uses some Editor functionality. For the shipping, I am surrounding my code with #if WITH_EDITOR

and inside build.cs I do:

 if (UEBuildConfiguration.bBuildEditor)
     PublicDependencyModuleNames.AddRange(new string[] { "UnrealEd" });

And still, if Shipping configuration is selected, I do get error about editor modules being included. I am missing something else important?

I see nobody at Epic cares to reply, posted similar question, but nobody cares apparently. Did you by any chance figure out what is causing this? My game was cooking fine on 4.13, the moment i switched to 4.17 it started shouting at me that im using some editor modules

4.19 here, but replacing UEBuildConfiguration.bBuildEditor for Target.Type == TargetType.Editor solved it for me.
