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"

Sound Wave assets seem to have the RF_Standalone flag upon import? Is there a reason for that?

I've been trying to load/unload sound wave assets at runtime to keep memory usage low (via FStreamableManager), and realized that they never get garbage collected, even though there are no more references to them. After having a look with the debugger I realized that the sound wave assets all seem to have the RF_Standalone UObject flag, which excludes them from garbage collection. Is there a technical reason for having that flag set for sound waves?

If yes, how can one cope with a list containing dozens of high quality sound assets, regarding memory usage?

Product Version: UE 4.17

RF_Standalone only excludes things from GC in the editor, and it is applied to all assets, not just sounds.

It doesn't affect the game.
