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 does a source build's location get added to the version selector

I'm trying to setup a P4 depot for UE4 that manages multiple small projects with a single engine install that is common to them all (so we can make engine modifications in 1 location, etc). I'm trying to figure out how best to get artists/others to associate our custom engine with they local workspaces.

I'd like to automate the process however having them select a uproject file and use the manual switch "unreal engine version" command is fine as well. But how does version selector pickup the custom source build?

Product Version: UE 4.19

I forgot that I posted this here. It's really simple. .uproject files have a field "EngineAssociation" which holds the GUID of the installed build to use. You can find what installs of the engine are current available by querying the registry at HKCU\Software\Epic Games\Unreal Engine\Builds.
