How do I start using Perforce Helix Core for my Unreal Engine projects?

To use Perforce Helix Core for development with Unreal Engine, please take the following steps:

Installation and setup of Helix Core Server: Install the Helix Core Server (P4D) on a server. After installation, set up a new depot and workspace to store your project files.

Set up the Perforce Visual Client (P4V): Install P4V on your computer. Configure P4V to connect to your Helix Core Server by entering the server address, your user name and your workspace.

Unreal Engine Editor Configuration: Open the Unreal Engine and go to “Edit > Editor Preferences > Source Control.” Select “Perforce” from the dropdown options, enter your server details, username and workspace, and click “Connect.”

Working with files: Once set up, you can add files for versioning, submit changes and manage the status of your files in Unreal Editor or via P4V.

How to manage branches and merge conflicts in Helix Core for Unreal Engine projects?

Branching and merging are essential aspects of working with versioning systems, especially in teams. In Helix Core, you use “streams” for efficient branching and merging:

Set up streams: Define streams in your Perforce repository to represent different lines of development (e.g. main, development, feature). Streams facilitate branching and merging by providing a hierarchical structure.

Branching: Create a new stream for your feature or development line. Perforce automatically creates a new branch based on the parent stream.

Working in branches: You can work in your respective streams without affecting the main development line. This allows you to isolate changes and develop features independently.

Merging: When you are ready to merge your changes into the main stream, use the “Merge” command in P4V or the stream management tool. If there are merge conflicts, Perforce will prompt you to resolve them manually before finalizing the merge.

Remember to communicate regularly and check in your work frequently to minimize merge conflicts and facilitate collaboration within your team.
