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"

Why can't Unreal Engine 4 find my Perforce workspace?

I am trying to setup a perforce server so I can work on a game with some people and Unreal Engine 4 can't detect the workspace in perforce. Maybe it is because the workspace is on another drive? And if that is the reason why, is there anyway to work around this? Any help is appreciated.

Product Version: UE 4.21

First thing first, could you please describe your setup?

If I understand correctly, you have installed a local server, on which you created an (empty?) repository. Did you create a workspace on your drive, connected to this repository? Is it working fine in Helix/Perforce GUI called P4V?

A workspace is local "copy" of the repository, where you can work, add/modify files and then submit them to the repository on the server. This workspace needs to be at the same location as your Unreal Project; by which I mean that if you create a MyProject UE4 project into D:\Unreal Projects\My Project this should by the location of your workspace. From this point Unreal should be able to find the workspace if you provide all the connection information.

Cheers, Sébastien
