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"

(Academic License) Can't download the engine

When I open the launcher, go to library and add an engine, it says "subscribe" instead of download, and the button sends me to the billing page. I have UE4 for academic use

Hi samugabb,

Did you redeem your code on the redeem code link on the main page of the unreal engine login site? You can do so here: https://www.unrealengine.com/code-redemption. If you already have, the editor should still allow you access to the latest version of the engine. Try these steps:

1) Open the UE4 launcher 2) At the top of the launcher, choose "engines". 3) From the drop down menu, choose the latest version and install. 4) Log in using your EDU account information

This should allow you access to the editor despite the subscription message.

alt text I did as you told me but I still have a "subscribe" button instead of a "download" one. This is the page I get when I press the subscribe button: as you can see I'm logged in (logout option in the top menu bar) but it still requires me to enter billing information. Maybe the code wasn't succesfuly redeemed on my account? Under the Billing Information menu on my account panel there's no sign of the free activation of 1 year subscription

ok now it seems like I have solved the problem. I just redeemed another code from the list of my classroom, as the code I redeemed previously apparently didn't work. But now we have one less code and we needed them all. Will make my instructor send you an email ASAP.
