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"

Ubuntu is free, Ubuntu , but check that your hardware meets requirements first. If your dev machine still has XP on it, it might not be able to run UE4 anyway.

So UE4 runs on unbuntu, but not winxp, so if i get ubuntu, it might run?

Ubuntu can run it, but your pc hardware may be below the minimum requirements.

I don't think UE4 supports directX 9 :(

I installed win 8 - 64bit just so I could install UE4 (mainly because I didn't have enough Ram because I had winXP 32bit) You could get win7/8 free via the microsoft bizspark program

Hello Sir. To provide serious games it is nearly impossible for you to run UE4 on a (I think) underpowered machine running WinXP. This OS is about 14 years old, so why are you waiting for buying a new PC + a newer OS ? Also the support of DirectX and and and with WinXP is not given. So sorry for telling you this ....but it is true
