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"

Runtime DLL loading for a core dependency module

I'm attempting to add a module as a core dependency. This module is simply a wrapper for importing an external library (a dll on windows) as well as a preprocessor define if it locates its essential components. This corresponds to some small changes in the code for loading pak files.

Everything works nicely up to the point that I still need my DLL in the active directory of any game binaries I create.

I need to find a way to invoke FPlatformProcess::GetDllHandle() to load the dll's from a more elegant location (IE binarie/thirdparty/mymodule).

I can't seem to do this in mymoduleclass::StartupModule() because doing so requires inheriting from core, creating a circular dependency.

Is there a better way to load DLL's for core dependencies?
