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"

[Closed] Can I copy UE4 to another system without a full download?

Today I wanted to put UE4 onto my MacBook Pro, so I figured I'll copy the launcher from /Applications and all the downloaded content from /Users/Shared/UnrealEngine and ~/Documents/Unreal* folders on the desktop to the MBP to appropriate places.

Tough luck.

Upon starting the Launcher I got prompted to download 10GB+ of stuff, AGAIN.

For the love of life, please make it so that we can just copy the pre-installed files to our other computers. Why is this even being an issue I do not understand when all the paths are relative in the .ini files?!
