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"

Commandline arg to prevent archive stage in a BuildCookRun?

I used the Project Launcher tool to generate a desired set of commandline args to send to UE4-Cmd to perform a BuildCookRun.

I do not desire an archive step to run, and did not select this option in the Project Launcher config I constructed.

However, when I run the build command, I get this warning:

 2019-01-11 09:46:11  WARNING: No Archive Dir specified! Using default Z:\AutomatedBuilds

This path is coming from a value set in my project settings.

Is there a flag I can pass to suppress the archive stage entirely? Eg -noarchive or something? Instead of this behavior where it falls back to a project default?

Here is the command generated by the tool I am using:

 BuildCookRun -project=foobarproject -noP4 -clientconfig=Shipping -serverconfig=Shipping -nocompile -nocompileeditor -ue4exe=UE4Editor-Cmd.exe -utf8output -platform=Win64 -targetplatform=Win64 -build -cook -map=foobarmap -unversionedcookedcontent -pak -stage -package -stagingdirectory=foopath -cmdline=foobarmap
