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"

UE4 not using all cores when compiling project

Hello,

So I just upgraded to a Threadripper 1950x and while compiling the engine uses all my cores, compiling my project in the engine doesn't which makes for very slow iteration times.

Is there anyway for me to force ue4 to use all my cores?

Thanks

Product Version: UE 4.18

I found that converting my project to IWYU and setting the bUseUnityBuild to false, MinFilesUsingPrecompiledHeader to 1 and ProcessorCountMultiplier to 2 in the BuildConfiguration.xml fixed the issue of using all cores. Iteration times are still not as fast as I expected it to be still taking around 5 to 30 secs depending on how much code changed, but its not unbearable, if any one has any idea of how to speed up iteration times please tell me, thanks.
