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"

Adding PhysX support to plugin?

I am working to add PhysX support to a plugin for Unreal Engine 4.17. When I add the PhysX headers I need (namely PxConvexMeshDesc.h). I get the following compiler errors in PxMath.h and PxWindowsIntrinsic.h.

PxWindowsIntrinsics.h(63): error C2062: type 'float' unexpected

PxWindowsIntrinsics.h(63): error C2059: syntax error: 'constant'

PxWindowsIntrinsics.h(63): error C2059: syntax error: ')'

PxWindowsIntrinsics.h(64): error C2143: syntax error: missing ';' before '{'

PxWindowsIntrinsics.h(64): error C2447: '{': missing function header (old-style formal list?)

PxMath.h(320): error C2589: '(': illegal token on right side of '::'

PxMath.h(320): error C2059: syntax error: '::'

ERROR : UBT error : Failed to produce item: C:\Users\Dragonfire\Documents\Unreal Projects\LRMVehicle\Plugins\BMVehicle\Binaries\Win64\UE4Editor-BMVehicle.pdb

Any ideas on what I am doing wrong to include the headers?

Look up how other plugins use PhysX, here you have one:


Remember to also check build script as you will need to add PhysX module depency

The link goes to a 404. I logged in and it still went 404.

I added PhysX and APEX to the dependencies, first in public then also in private. It appears to be a namespace collision in one of the PhysX math header inline functions.

I will dig through the source code for ImmediatePhysics plugin and see what I can work out. Thank you for the lead on where to look. I hadn't even considered looking into their internal plugins.
