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"

Switching build configurations triggers recompilation

When I switch from "DebugGame Editor" to "DebugGame" configuration without any code changes, UBT recompiles around 440 source files as if they weren't compiled already for that configuration. Is there any way to make it not recompile when I switch configurations ?

I think I know why. Even though you have multiple configurations in Visual Studio, With UBT each configuration does NOT produce a separate dll/exe like in a normal C++ project configuration. So basically switching configurations triggers needless recompilation.
