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"

Convert absolute path to in-game path


Is there a method somewhere that can help me convert a full path


That I choose from directory browser in my UE4 plugin. (this is the path to search the assets in)

But actually my assets are located in this path (used copy refference in asset browser)


So later if I would need to do this:

 FStringAssetReference DiffuseAssetPath(MyPath);
 UTexture* DiffuseTexture = Cast<UTexture>(DiffuseAssetPath.TryLoad());

MyPath should be using L2Next_Commons/test/ + assetname

So in the end:

How to convert this:


to this:

/Game should give you access to the Content folder. But usually what I do is just put some variables that I will then expose to blueprint. I can then create a BP derived from my cpp file and set whatever I want from the Content folder.

No its incorrect, /Game will give me the access to content folder INSIDE the main Game, it will not give me the path to content folder inside a plugin

Oh my bad I did not read that right. try something like IPluginManager::Get().FindPlugin(TEXT("MyPlugin"))->GetContentDir();
