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"

Installing multiple versions on Linux

Is there any way to install the binaries for UE4 on Linux? I have successfully built version 4.20 of the code, but there's no 'make install' target like most other software has. I can still successfully run the editor and use it, but I would like to have multiple versions installed in parallel so that I can open up some old reference projects with an earlier engine version(similar to how Windows works). Is this possible to do, or do I just need to have separate checkout folders per engine version?

Separate checkout folders seems ideal, the build creates files in place so it won't be possible to have multiple versions in the same folder anyway.

This is similar to what the launcher does on windows too, it puts each version of the engine into a separate folder.
