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"

Copyright problems due to UE logo

I have a problem with google play where they won't let me update my app (which is in alpha only for testing purposes) after submiting an appeal for reinstatement they told me that it was due to my app having the unreal engine logo which it does not, at least not intentionally because i don't use any unreal engine assets in my game, so i think it must be because the engine packs it's logo and some other assets when packaging the game?. Google told me that to solve the problem i should either remove the images or show a document which states that i have permission to use said logo, but by being a subscriber don't i have said permission or a license to use UE4? if not then how can i remove the images or solve this problem?

Here the link which has info about how you can use logo

https://www.unrealengine.com/branding-guidelines-and-trademark-usage

Considering they notice Unreal logo in apk means they are not packed in uasset which would require editor to view it, but always few unpackaged images in every apk... and those are application icon logos, in few resolutions to fit multiple screen pixel densities, they are set up individually, so i suspect you may forgot one of them or you didn't set up icon at all and default unreal logo is used. APKs in reality is just a JAR files, so use any commpression tool that supports JAR and try to explore it and check where they find that logo

Your answer made me notice that i have been using the unreal logo in the application icon logos so google might been noticing that. I've already removed them and i'm going to submit the app again, if the problem persists i'll head back here.

As a UE4 EULA licensee, you don't have the automatic right to use the UE4 logo trademark to market your game, but you can get a right to use it here.

But what you report is curious for sure. I take it then that there is no UE4 splash screen when you load the game?

No i don't have a splash screen but the UE default logos were being used as the application icons so it might be the problem, i've already replaced them and resubmitted the application. Thanks for the help
