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"

Setup.Bat not working while creating Dedicated Server.

Hello! I was in the process of making a dedicated server. I got the source code from GitHub and tried running the file Setup.bat. I did this and got this error:

Checking dependencies (excluding Mac, Android, Linux)...

Updating dependencies: 99% (33911/34200), 5845.1/5846.4 MiB | 0.88 MiB/s...

Failed to download 'http://cdn.unrealengine.com/dependencies/2636758-e606e606851e4693b1729dd35dcef7ae/345f37ad429b27f1360cf26aa535ef037724f7c4': The specified path, file name, or both are too long. The fully qualified file name must be less than 260 characters, and the directory name must be less than 248 characters. (PathTooLongException)

Press any key to continue . . .

How do I fix this? Help is appreciated. Thanks!

I had the same issue and its stupid frustrating i know. I unzipped the file directly into my C:/ and when you unpack it did you notice it has two files of the same name to go through?


you need to make it so it isnt a two folder hop to get to the source code if that makes sense..


hope that makes sense and helps.
