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 tried everything but nothing works. Also the epic launcher sometimes fails to load or loads and freezes, the help page said to run dxdiag, so I did - https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=96ed1b9d5831449a!3250&authkey=!ABLBRs39Uv7bl3s⁢hint=file%2ctxt I hope this will help solve my issue

I have a different issue. I can go online but it shows me offline in the top row. And I can't get this little point green only in my home WLAN. What could be the problem? Thanks

Can you try this? At the end of the Target path, add: " -http=wininet" without the quotes, then apply and restart your Launcher.

Hi samcarne12,

You add it to the end of the Launcher shortcut. You can find more info on it here.

Cheers,

This will happen if you block lsass.exe from accessing the internet. After the launcher starts it asks this process to connect to several GoDaddy servers for what seems to be a version check. If it can't connect it just sits there trying forever.

For those still have this problem and can't get fixed, try this solution

Control Panel ->Internet Options ->Advanced tab -> click on the Reset button and maybe restart needed.
