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"

Can you prevent a packed project from trying to access epic's severs?

After running a packaged project I get a firewall notification saying that myproject.exe is trying to access et2.epicgames.com 199,255.40.68:80. I have been digging through the .ini files trying to find a list of IP addresses to cut out, but no luck so far.

I know it's probably just sending system information to epic, but it looks a bit sketchy if I'm distributing my UE4 demo and it's trying to access a sever for no reason.

Is there a way to turn this off?

Thanks.

Packaging with the "shipping" config will remove the firewall warning. There are quite a few IAnalyticsProvider objects in the engine that appear to be phoning home, such as hardware survey, crash reporting, etc. These are removed in shipping.
