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"

I know myself as well that it has been a pain to get sample projects, as it requires running the Launcher on the other two platforms.

Epic has been considering a release of Launcher on Linux for the last couple of months, but the general consensus was that until Linux binary release of the engine is made, Launcher part will be held back.

The thinking behind this was that if Launcher is made available then everyone will think that Linux Editor is officially supported and will demand working binaries, which Epic is not prepared to deliver yet, due to outstanding issues with Linux Editor.

Then again, maybe we will see the Launcher before the end of the year, as a present, regardless of the Editor binary release on Linux.

Would it be possible to include it in the github offering (e.g. a private repository with the binaries in it or somesuch)? Then none will be confused about official support and we can get sample project on linux, that would be really nice ...
