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"

Hey Lawrie,

You do not have to re-subscribe to publish a game, however there are steps that must be taken which can be found here:

Hope that answers your questions!

The short answer is that you can release a game without an active subscription. Under the terms of the EULA, canceling your subscription allows you to use the current version you have downloaded and release products using that version. You will still be obligated to pay the 5%. However, if you cancel your subscription, you will not get access to any updates or bug fixes that are released by Epic.

You can release your game with that version of UE4 you have. You don't need further subscription.
