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't download launcher. Access for country is blocked.

On attempt to load Unreal installer(https://download.epicgames.com/Builds/UnrealEngineLauncher/Installers/EpicGamesLauncherInstaller-2.0.1-2467307.msi) I see the webpage :

ERROR The request could not be satisfied. The Amazon CloudFront distribution is configured to block access from your country. Generated by cloudfront (CloudFront) Request ID: mVcV7WlNJ8PsP4l6NVE2_7eThRxo6mS9xhg_hjwGEIfzixooCQ_fKA==

Country: Belarus. Well, that is clear enough. But why?! Is that some setup done by Amazon, or Epic Games? So what I suppose to with that? I manage to get the installer but I guess I'm getting more issues simply because the launcher connects to Amazon hosts during it's work.

Hi Sin,

We are blocking IP addresses from certain countries to comply with US law. We are however currently investigating whether we are blocking too aggressively / too many people.

We will post back as soon as we have an update on this.

Hi Sin,

Please see this forums post. Most countries were unblocked and now should be able to download UE4.

If you have issues downloading the editor, please post back here to let us know.

Thanks! I'm already following this forum thread and monitor how unreal launcher works so I got UE4 as soon as it became available.
