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"

Why is the Euro price higher than the Dollar?

First, thanks to make UE4 avaible with such a nice offer!

I've started to fill the required form to get UE4, when i've see that the price for eurozone was not 19 $ but 19€ (wich is 26 $ ^^' ). It's not a big deal for me but is it really justified to do such a conversion? I'll gladly paid to get the UE4 at this price, but as many european here (i think) we'd appreciate a honest answer to this question.

cordialy

Thanks for your interest in UE4. VAT varies from country-to-country across Europe, but in order to simplify, Epic chose a single Eurozone price aimed at fairly capturing VAT and credit card processing fees. Another complicating factor is the fluctuating nature of different currencies' relative value, but we hope 19€ represents a good value for you.

Not sure but I think it's the same because it includes VAT

When you knock off VAT @20% 19EUR becomes 15.20EUR which is $20.90. Still more in terms of numbers but in terms of what you can buy? I think what could I buy for $19? Can I buy the same for 19EUR?

19€ in germany is actually around 26$, means around +35% compared to the 19$ ... not really good from my point of view ;)
