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"

Load .pak file from url/server

The problem is simple and vital for us:

We have an Unreal application on tablet device. We need the application Load .pak file from server at lunch time. For this, we need to assign a web url address belongs to our server, for location of the source files.

The best solution will be; Call the application and pass the .pak file address via command line, like this:

myapp.exe http://..//ourserver/paks/archvizDS04/myapp-WindowsNoEditor

This can solve a huge problem for us in case of develop Archviz projects. There are numbers and numbers of levels which we need to open inside Unreal. Let me give you an example, assume we have a 40 levels apartment and each level has a different set and visuals. Pak all levels into one unreal file , makes the file huge which caused issue on local storage and load time on tablet machines. We need to call each level (pak) from a remote source at load time at the time of lunching application and show "Loading" message to user. Same scenario like Flash based application which load data from remote source at lunch time..

I checked this link but the problem is, it does not work on 4.17.


Please help ..

Product Version: UE 4.17
