Is it possible to disable updates?
A few students, including me, want to try the engine for half a year and since everyone's budget is low, we want to stay on the version everyone is able to update to within the first month of subscription.
So is it possible to disable the launcher from updating by itself to prevent it from mismatching with the others? Or can one choose the revision to work on? Or is it harmless to mix versions (don't think so though)?
You are correct that teams would have difficulties trying to work on the same project across different engine versions.
It sounds like what you really want to do is have everyone pay for the first month subscription, and then cancel your subscriptions. This is a perfectly fine approach. For the first paid month, all members will receive engine updates. After the subscription runs out, you will all be able to continue using the engine version that you already have, and will not be getting any updates.
If you happen to decide as a group later that you all want to upgrade to a new version, then it will be no hassle for each member to renew their membership for a month and get the updates, then cancel again as necessary.
I hope this helps.
