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"

Xcode indexing

Hi, I just created a new project with starter content in Unreal. It started Xcode and it’s stuck on indexing. Both Unreal and Xcode are fresh installs. Unreal version is 4.19 and Xcode version is 10. Can anyone help me explain what’s going on? Just running Xcode and Unreal editor without doing anything is using 95% of my ram. (8gb ram).

Product Version: UE 4.19

I am having a similar issue with 4.19/xcode 10. xcode will be indexing using a reasonable amount of memory (for hours) however at some point it will begin to use all the available memory eventually crashing osx.

The same issue UE4.20, Xcode 10, MBP 15 2017.

Indexing was trying to use more than 8G ram on my device (activity monitor showed that). It felt like stuck, I ended up installing visual studio code.

  • MacOs Mojave

  • UE 4.20.3

  • Xcode 10 -VSCode 1.27.2 (1.27.2)

I did the same and installed VSCode for the same reason of indexing. I added several extensions to VSCode but it still keeping showing erros : "CoreMinimal.h" file not found expected a ';' his declaration has no storage class or type specifier

Any help on setting up VSCode for UE4 ?

VScode didn't really need a lot of installation or anything. I suggest use easyfinder app to find CoreMinimal.h, maybe it's in the wrong location. If you do find it, open it in the editor and check for errors.

I had an extra copy of windows so I used bootcamp and installed windows. I am now working on visual studio. Visual studio code works as well, I just needed a compiler because I am relatively new to coding.

Yeah I am doing this as well. Additionally using VScode to build the engine/dedicated server is much more complicated and seemed way over my head.

If you are going to use an external drive to store your files, just a heads up, visual studio installs some of its files in the C drive for windows, so leave some space for that.

indexing takes a looooong time in xcode, it looks like it's stuck but in fact it's not. It's will take some time to finish but it will at some point.
