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"

OS X Yosemite Installation 4.5.1 Beach Ball Of Death

Hi guys, i'm running a MacBook Pro Retina 13 inch late 2013 with 8 gigs of RAM and plenty of HDD space, and whenever I try to install UE 4 v4.5.1, at some point in the installation, it seems to give me a beach ball of death and I can never finish downloading. If you guys have any advice, it would be much appreciated!

How would I do that on a Mac, the verbose logs I mean.

I'm sorry, sometimes that documentation in a little vague for Macs. Look just below step 10 to see the directions for where to find them on Mac.

So i would just add "-HTTP=Curl" onto the end of the name of Unreal-Engine-Launcher-Mac-Shipping?

Not in the end of the "name", but as a parameter to the executable Unreal-Engine-Launcher-Mac-Shipping that is inside the bundle "Unreal Engine.app".

Hi nutella,
