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"

Download PAK file from server on runtime

The problem is simple:

We have an application which is made by Unreal Engine 4.17. This application shows “Home” and “Apartments” in the way that user can walk through inside the property and watch it as like first person shooter game. They use this in Real Estate for advertisement and it`s called “Arch-Viz”.

The application (at lunch time) read and load a”.pak” file from a folder and use it as data. So it means each apartment has a “.pak” file and it is unique. We can replace “.pak” file in folder before lunch the app, and then when we lunch Unreal Engine app, we will face apartment which came from “.pak” file of its own. For better understanding, imagine “.pak” file is a “Photo” and when Unreal Engine app lunched, it shows that photo. We can change photos inside the folder and lunch app and then, we see different photo.

Everything is OK with PC. Our problem is, in IPad, when the application is published under IPad, we can NOT replace the “.pak” file with another “.pak” file before lunch because IOS doesn’t allow us to do it because of how IOS override the folder permissions

I need your help for make some code that download “.pak” from server at runtime, mount it and open it for user. Please contact me on katax.emperor@gmail.com and

please , please
