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"

Well this is complaining about system related issues. "1>UnrealBuildTool : error : ShaderCompileWorker does not support the Win32 platform.". One: are you running a 32bit windows? Two: is VS (or other IDE) in 32bit debug mode? Three: did you install the c++ components correctly for VS (or other IDE)

Yeah, I apparently was in 32 bit mode in VS, I looked around after posting the question, but forgot to mark it as solved.

Thank you anyways!
