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"

[Suggestion] Tool to rename C++ projects

Currently it's difficult to rename projects which include c++ code. https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/242407/renaming-a-c-project.html This can lead to errors making the game impossible to compile. It would be useful to have a feature was added into the launcher which could automate this process.

Note that while renaming the the project just requires renaming of uproject file, but you don't need to rename the C++ module it self (directory in "Source"), which name wont be visible anyway if you package to monolithic exe, which UE4 does by default if you do shipping build. The project will use module defined in uproject file with it's name and change of uproject file name won't effect that, this includes generated sln file

 "Modules": [
       "Name": "SomeModuleName",
       "Type": "Runtime",
       "LoadingPhase": "Default"

If you would change the name of C++ module, then it becomes more complicated and it is required to do steps defined in that post

Also that epic does the same by still keeping "Kismet" and "K2" (Kismet 2.0) names for stuff that was used before it was renamed to "Blueprint", to avoid rename complications ;]

Oh, right. I was really over thinking it. Thanks of the help.

That might explain why most of the files in Infinity Blade 1 are named things like SwordGame*.*
