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"

Error when using bShouldCompileAsDLL

Hey guys, I'm trying to compile and use Modules as dll, so I can them load up at runtime through FModulManager::LoadModule... So to do that I added a new Target to my project witch only uses the module I want as dll and activated the bShouldCompileAsDLL option... the module contains Actors with Blueprint exposed functions. When I now compile for shipping I get this error:

 OtherModule modifies the value of bShouldCompileAsDLL. This is not allowed, as OtherModule has build products in common with UE4Game.    


 using UnrealBuildTool;
 using System.Collections.Generic;
 public class OtherModuleTarget : TargetRules
     public OtherModuleTarget(TargetInfo Target) : base(Target)
         Type = TargetType.Game;
         ExtraModuleNames.AddRange( new string[] { "OtherModule" } );
         LinkType = TargetLinkType.Modular;
         bShouldCompileAsDLL  = true;


 using UnrealBuildTool;
 public class OtherModule : ModuleRules
     public OtherModule(ReadOnlyTargetRules Target) : base(Target)
         PCHUsage = PCHUsageMode.UseExplicitOrSharedPCHs;
         PublicDependencyModuleNames.AddRange(new string[] { "Core", "CoreUObject", "Engine", "InputCore" });

How can I compile this target as DLL for LoadModule
