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"

Hi Hgdavidy,

I was able to reproduce this and have entered a bug report, UE-6461 to be assessed by the development staff. Thank you.

In Engine.ini


I replaced it with


Just ran into this myself testing my game with a few friends. Got the game to start for me, figured out only thing different was I wasn't logged into steam at the time.

Haven't been able to start up a match yet but at least the game is starting and people can mess around locally. Using the "Open " command in console caused a crash to desktop.

Edit: Logging out of Steam and shutting it down allowed us to start online matches and play.

Looks like the steam api is included in 4.6 but no idea why not work as expected, thanks for the info.

Found a workaround for the time being.

I'm using a batch file in the packaged games root folder to launch the game.

 start "" WindowsNoEditor\TestGame\Binaries\Win64\ShooterGame.exe -NOSTEAM

The -NOSTEAM part is the important bit. I've been able to launch without having to log out of steam. I haven't had a chance to have anyone else test it though but it works for me for both the client and server executables.

Is this fixed / working for 4.7 ?

Hi Hevedy,

This is still under assessment by the development staff. Unfortunately I do not have a timeframe of when a fix will be implemented.

Had the same issue with 4.7.6, tried many solutions offered on UE4 Answerhub such as deleting the project, emptying the vault,...

To get the Shootergame to launch from the Editor or the executable to run, exiting the Steam application as suggested in the comments above was all that was required.
