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.

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.)
