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 debug engine source file without launch Editor?

My question is How to debug engine source file without launch Editor?
When I use "DebugGame_Editor" configuration to debug game, I can click stackframe to view it's corresponding source file, both game and engine source file. But it will always launch editor.
Using "DebugGame" configuration to debug, I can only view corresponding game source file. When I click stackframe in engine, it says "source not available".
I just want to view quickly debug engine and game source file without launching Editor. Thanks!

Product Version: UE 4.18

I'd like to know as well as recently my dedicated GPU died but I continue to code until I get it replaced so being able to launch and debug would be very handy! I'm up-voting this.

To debug the engine you want to use the plain old "Debug" build configurations. The "DebugGame" set don't do this so it's much faster to build. So try "Debug Editor" and build that. Just be prepared to wait for quite a while.

Thank you for your reply.
I have read the official document, it says there are both "Debug" and "DebugGame" configuration. But I cannot find "Debug" build configuration in my project, only "DebugGame"(DebugGame, DebugGame_Editor). So how can I create a "Debug" configuration?

Hmm... I guess you need to get the engine source from Github and use that instead of the launcher version.
