Building iOS game in Unreal Engine 4 via remote machine

In Unreal Engine 4 to build a source code for the iOS the Mac computer with installed Xcode is needed.

You can start a building process on the PC with Windows which will send the source code to the Mac computer, compile the code there, get the results and finish cooking and packaging the ipa on PC.

But if you want to extend the Cheat Manager in your game there are few steps that must be followed.
