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 to GET UNREAL even with slow internet connection speed?

Actually, I have been looking for a really good gaming engine. And, I think I have found it. So, I want to GET UNREAL :) But my problem is, my internet downloading speed.

To be honest, i don't face any problem while surfing, and using youtube. But in case of downloading, it's speed has never crossed 80Kb/s. It just shows 50-60Kb/s.

So, what should i do now? How can i use this engine even with this scenarion?

Please, Please, Please, any help!!! :(

Product Version: UE 4.8

Hi SarthakJoshi,

A slow download speed isn't ideal, since it's several gigs worth of data you'll be getting, but aside from the wait there shouldn't be any problems if the connection is solid. If you get any errors during the process, let us know. Otherwise, you'll just have to wait it out.

But how can I use this engine? Actually, I didn't mention, I have downloaded source code, in zip format. But when I started that setup batch file, I was startled after getting to know that dependencies are about 2 GB. And my downloading speed is about 50kbps.

So, I wanna know is their any way by which I can build this engine? Please. Try to understand my situation.

Yes, Setup.bat requires an internet connection to download those dependencies. Once those are installed, you won't need the internet to finish the process by running GenerateProjectFiles.bat and then running the .sln file to build the engine.

There is one more thing I wanna know. Let's say I've gotta shut down my lappy. And that setup batch file hasn't completed its downloading. Then what should I do? Can I some how resume its downloading, even after restarting my lappy?

It should continue where it left off if it's interrupted while downloading. I would avoid shutting down during installation of those dependencies, however.

Awesome!!! Thank you very much.
