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"

Cross-compiling setup needs UE4 build from source?

I wanted to cook my project for Linux so I was reading the instructions to achieve this.

I installed the toolchain and added the environment variables, but the next step confuses me. I am supposed to build UE4 source? Nowhere in the instructions was stated that I had to clone UE4 or even have Visual Studio installed.

I'm not complaining I have to do this, just noting that there is a missing step on the wiki if that's what you're supposed to do. I was expecting it would be more like a plugin but I guess the UE4 libs have to be crosscompiled as well.

If that's the case, how does that work with my current Editor installation? I used the Epic Installer to install the engine. I am a bit confused about this.

Product Version: UE 4.20
