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"

Can I change my display name ?

When I created account I didn't realized that my display name will be shared across all sites. It would be nice, to be able to change display name for Q&A site. I want to have different name here and different on forums.

Your Epic display name is used across all their products

1) You can contact accounts@unrealengine.com with your request (as mentioned).

2) (I prefer this method) You can go to the following link and submit the form on there: http://help.epicgames.com/customer/en/portal/articles/2313876-how-do-i-change-my-display-name-?b_id=9727

Note: If the above link does not work -Goto https://www.epicgames.com/ and search for help - you may need some patience with that. I found it under About Epic > FAQ, and then you'll find links in there. You can go here: http://help.epicgames.com/ as a shortcut. (Note that I'm giving all these links because you will submit your details on that form, and you may want to make sure you get to the right place to avoid the theft of your info / hackers.) -Search the support centre for 'How do I change my display name?' or 'display name'. You can try this link to get to the form should it still work: http://help.epicgames.com/customer/en/portal/articles/2313876-how-do-i-change-my-display-name-?b_id=9727

-Submit the form

-Wait for their email and follow their instructions.

Note that you can only change your user name once every 6 months (at time of writing - this could change in the future, or not) I recommend that you use your actual name, or your nickname. This way, people know who they are talking to.

Thanks and good luck.

Sorry, but we do not allow display name to be different between forums and AnswerHub (nor wiki either). Our intention is for you to have a single identity across all of our UE4 community features that you can be proud of. :)

As we don't yet have an official policy about changing display name, you can contact accounts@unrealengine.com with your request. Let them know your account e-mail and the display name you want to change to. :)
