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"

How to add external code to a project? (Getting 'unresolved external symbol' errors)

I'm trying to add FastNoise (https://github.com/Auburns/FastNoise) to a c++ project. I've successfully linked third party libraries to a project before, but FastNoise just seems to be a .h and .cpp file (no .lib or.dll) so I'm not sure how to add it to a project.

I tried simply adding FastNoise.h and FastNoise.cpp to my project's source folder, and then including the header and using a function, but the compiler throws LNK2019 errors:

 LNK2019    unresolved external symbol "public: void __cdecl FastNoise::SetSeed(int)" (?SetSeed@FastNoise@@QEAAXH@Z) referenced in function "public: class TArray<float,class FDefaultAllocator> __cdecl UNoiseMakerComponent::Make2DHeightMap(int,int)" (?Make2DHeightMap@UNoiseMakerComponent@@QEAA?AV?$TArray@MVFDefaultAllocator@@@@HH@Z)

So it seems like the code isn't being properly linked? I see other people are using FastNoise in the work, but I can't figure out what they're doing differently.

It seems like that library has a specific UE4 plugin that you can use:
