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 have exactly the same problem. My account is active but I can't download the engine because of the subscribe button. I try to reinstall the launcher, turn off my firewall and antivirus, run as admin, sign off and in multiple time, exit the program and come back. Win8.1 here. I can select the engine but not download it.

Hi there,

A couple of quick questions. First is your subscription active? If not what is the latest version you're subscribed up to?

The reason you're seeing 'Subscribe' is likely because your subscription is not currently active. If you feel this is in error and you are currently subscribed to UE4, shoot an email to accounts@unrealengine.com so they can look into the issue further. If you've subscribed in the past, try an older version of the engine to see which ones were available during your active subscription.

Hope that helps! :)

If you have installed the engine and then you are are seeing that then try launching it manually from "Epic Games\Launcher\VaultCache\UE_4.6\data\Engine\Binaries\Win64\UE4Editor.exe"

Hello roysgi,

Are you seeing the subscribe button on the page (Library) below for your account? If so you will need to follow the suggestions that DotCam has laid out. If there are no engines showing, having you tried clicking [+ Add Engine ] button shown in the upper left of the gray area of the Engines section.
