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"

Server use with non-source-compiled UE4

When it comes to multiplayer games, I'm guessing whether the engine is built from source, or installed via the launcher, there's a server involved regardless, yes?

Suppose I build a multiplayer game with the launcher-installed engine (if possible?). Is the server accessible via the editor only or... something? I'm not certain how this multiplayer system would deploy on this engine version.

Yes, I'm aware of "just build the engine" but the big deterrent is its large size to build. With the launcher version, I know there is no "standalone dedicated server" option, so I'm wondering what are the server options, if any?

Product Version: UE 4.21

Ooooh I see. So the source build is needed if I want to separate it from UE4Editor...
