Unreal Engine 4 Diff Assist Tool


I’m not sure where to post this (sorry!), but I thought it would be useful to share a tool I created to help with Diff’ing UE4 Assets.

I’ve built this tool because I had trouble to easily check changes between assets in the awesome Tom Looman’s Survival Game series.

It is really easy to use:

  1. Drag and drop the latest (or the version you’re using of) UE4Editor.exe on the first textbox.
  2. Drag and drop the older file you’re willing to diff on the second textbox.
  3. Drag and drop the newer file you’re willing to diff on the third textbox.
  4. Click on Diff button
  5. Wait until UE4Editor Loads
  6. Pick a project (hopefully, pick the project this file is related to)
  7. Wait until the Diff appears.

I thought it would be nice to post here, since there’s a chance more people are used to text-based diff tools (in my case, Beyond Compare), and are also interested in a convenient way to see differences in assets.

It’s a very simple (and hackish!) tool, but might prove useful to someone out there :slight_smile:

You can download the code from the GitHub Repository or download the compiled version from it’s release page.

Please, let me know what you think :slight_smile:

I have moved your thread to “Community Content, Tools and Tutorials”.

This is a pretty cool tool … I will give it a run tonight when I get home. 8-}
