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"

Plugin/Addon quesiton

Hello guys, I have a quick question for you today. If I want to make a plugin/addon and put it on sale that addon can have an external .exe program? And my actual addon to be just an interface in UE4 which will let users interact with the core program(exe file)?

I haven't read it but I'm pretty sure you can't include exe files :P

I don't see any restriction of an exe file there... and also I don't see any reason to not be possible

The reason is pretty obvious, an exe file can do anything and it would be a bad security breach. BTW probably you can since every submission is hardly inspected and I guess they would decompile the exe so, if your plugin follows all the rules I guess you have no problems :)
