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 link library in Build.cs correctly?

I have an external C++ library that I bind to my UE project in my Build.cs file like so:


which works. However I have not been able to use a relative path here. I tried anything I could think of but I always get a "lib not found" error, the absolute path is the only thing that works for me.

How can I link relative? To what basedirectory do I have to construct the relative path?


Product Version: UE 4.16

Hi Wallenstein isnt hard at all, I am using this: string ThirdParty = Path.GetFullPath(Path.Combine(ModuleDirectory, "../../ThirdParty/"));

the ModuleDirectory variable leads you to where is your .uplugin file, from there I have my libs, inside a folder called ThirdParty, and I am using System.IO in order to manage my strings, In addition you can print the string with Console.writeline() in c#
