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"

Had the same problem.

My previous Epic Games launcher installer is 2.0.1-2467307 but it can't launch. Window pop-up said try to download the latest version.

So I download the latest version (2.3.2-2612545)

After change the directory of the installation and click install, the other window pop-up come out and said ''The highlighted volumes do not have enough disk space available for the currently selected features. You can remove some files from highlighted volumes, install fewer features, or select a different destination drive.''

But I can't even chose the other volume. And when I pressed OK, it come back to the first installation window.

Hi Bonzaro,

The binary version of the engine will always install to the same drive that the Launcher was installed on. This is how the binary version works.

However, you could install the Launcher to your standard drive, then download the Source version to your SSD and compile it. This way you get a version of the engine on your SSD but the Launcher, Vault, and other Binary versions will be on your standard drive.

Let me know if that works for you.
