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"

Is there any free-trial somewhere?

I'm really interested in working with UE. Before getting a license I would like to try it (since I haven't used it before). Googling a little I found out that it is free for non-commercial use, but since I can't find any download anywhere I'm afraid that this 'free-trial' is not available anymore, am I right?

Bes regards.

short answer = no


long answer

UDK is being phased out, a lot of the core UDK download links are 404 not found now.

And there is no UDK4

Thanks, then I think the best solution is getting it and trying it for the first month. Do you think it is enought time to familiarize with the engine? I have fairly decent C++ skills, so most of the time I will be learning about the editor and API.

In the link you provided an user posted "...and you can still use the version you were licensed up to... ", that means I can buy the first month and cancel the subscription until I need updates and new content? That would be awesome.

1 Month Is Plenty, try 4 Days

When I was invited to the beta I had no experience with UE4 C++ and I still do not have access to the new UE4 Source code.

I was writing new features in C++ for my In-Game Editor within 4 days!

And I had not worked in c++ for years :)

There is the UDK which works with UE3. You can download it in udk

But many parts are rather different from UE4.

The trial is $19. What I mean by that is if you pay $19 you can use the engine that is out when you pay that amount indefinitely. Pretty good value if you ask me.
