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"

Updating Chunks Based on the Comparison of the Hashes

Hello there. I have a question about updating of chunks.

A Japanese documentation says as follows:

  • When you want to update only a specific part of chunks, you can just build the package and replace it with the older one on the server without changing build version of the chunks.

  • Chunks which are not updated will not be downloaded again because their hashes are not updated.


Documentation: https://www.slideshare.net/EpicGamesJapan/ue4-95204920

I personally confirmed that:

  • When you build a package, windowsnoeditor.manifest file will be created under CloudDir directory.

  • The .manifest file has a list of hashes of all chunks you built. A hash in the list will be updated when the chunk is updated.

I’m using “Request Content” node on blueprint to update chunks. It will always download the chunk regardless of whether the hash is updated or not.

What is the proper way to update chunks?

Chunking is a rather new feature of UE4 and the information is very scarce on the internet. Do you know anything about the implementation of updating chunks? Any kinds of clues are welcome. Thank you.

Product Version: UE 4.21
