Some legal questions
1- If i sell a commercial game and i pay/give to Epic the 5% of royalties x months, i need to buy that month or next month the engine subscription or Epic give me free that months the subscriptions ? ( and in company are 2 to 4 workers)
2- If in my game, web or license have a line with "Please if you make videos or streamings of this game and generate money with that consider donate a %" and for example some Youtubers give/donate me/company a $$$, i need pay from that $$$ the 5% or royalties ?
1) On your first question, Jacky is correct; whether you maintain a subscription is independent of whether and when you owe royalties. You are welcome to continue to be subscribed, but it's not a requirement.
2) Based on your description, the donations you describe would constitute revenue actually attributable to your game, so royalties would be owed (although, per the EULA, note that the first $3,000 in revenue per product per quarter is royalty free).
