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"

The uproject file seems to be corrupted. It's a text file but there is a null value in it.

Wait. This is confusing. Are you using the source-built engine (from github) or the one you install from the launcher?

The first error that says build manually -- that means it wants you to build the project from Visual Studio. The null in the generated uproject is baffling.

its from the launcher and i went into VS and built it and got a error from there as well
