Disable or remove SkookumScript in a UE4 project

Temporarily disable SkookumScript

  1. Locate the following folders:

    • MyProject\Scripts
    • MyProject\Content\SkookumScript

  2. Add a minus sign (-) at the beginning of these folder names, like so:

    • MyProject\-Scripts
    • MyProject\Content\-SkookumScript

  3. Open DefaultGame.ini and comment out the entry that refers to the MyProject\Content\SkookumScript folder.

SkookumScript is now disabled in your project. To re-enable SkookumScript, simply undo what you did in steps 2 and 3 above.

Permanently remove SkookumScript

  1. Delete these folders:

    • MyProject\Scripts
    • MyProject\Content\SkookumScript

  2. Open DefaultGame.ini and delete the entry that refers to the MyProject\Content\SkookumScript folder.

Your project is now de-Skookified. If you find yourself deeply regretting your decision to remove SkookumScript, you can always re-Skookify—see Set up a UE4 project to use SkookumScript.
