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"

Hey GM_Dre,

For 4.0, it should indeed be in that location. You also seem to be missing most of the content of that folder, including all the Binaries you would need to run the engine in the first place. I think two things are possible:

  1. You didn't get a full download/install. If this is the case, you probably can't even run the engine anyway. I would recommend redownloading the launcher and reinstalling from there.

  2. You moved the files elsewhere at some point, in which case you'd just need to locate wherever you have the rest of the engine.

Let us know if that doesn't help.

What method are you using to get the engine? Are you using the Launcher and getting the binary version, or building from source via GitHub?

Your Engine folder should look like this:

Are you able to run the Editor from the Launcher?
