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"

How can I force the Launcher to update?

After seeing "Patch failed. Retry?" for few times I decided to leave it for later and hit "No".

Any way I can force the launcher to get the update now? ;)

Hi phoboz,

It should properly self-update the next time you run, if it hasn't already. What is the version number in the lower left hand corner of the launcher? To dig deeper, can you enable verbose logging by editing your DefaultEngine.ini, which you can find here: "c:\program files\unreal engine\launcher\engine\programs\noredist\unrealenginelauncher\config" and add the following section to the end:


After you make that change, can you run again, and then post the logs here? If possible, zip up the logs (c:\users\YOUR_USER\appdata\local\unrealenginelauncher\saved\logs) and post the zip here. Thanks!

Hi Carlos,

After running the launcher a few times it came up with the update again.
