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"

Hey Enrico,

Are you packaging for Windows? If so, we have a bug in for this listed as UE-1419. It's currently unresolved and does not have an estimated fix version. If this is not a Windows issue on your end, please provide further details so that we can investigate this further.

Any updates?

Hey Keyle,

This issue is still in Jira as unresolved, it's currently set at a priority '3' which is normal. More pressing issues, such as crashes will be handled before this one.

Has this been fixed yet? :/

UE-1419 has not yet been corrected. There is not a fixed version set on the bug either.

This is a thing that every game should have, I don't get why it's taking so long...

Hey Samantha is it fixed in 4.11?

According to Jira, this bug is still backlogged. But there is a way to fix the issue on your own in the meantime, which has been posted in this thread by ChichigeBobo.

I found a way to circumvent this issue. Do this at your own risk because it's not safe way. I googled "exe change icon" then found article about ResourceHacker. Then I applied that to my exe file. But nothing changed. After a while, I realized and applied the method to Engine/Binaries/Win64/UE4Game-Win64-Shipping.exe. And it worked as I expected. Now I can avoid amaturish looks. (I don't know if UE4PrereqSetup_x64.exe needs it too.)
