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"

Epic Games Launcher downloading stuck during initial installation.

Hi. Sorry to bother you. I'm new to UE4 (I've been working with Unity but i decided to move to UE). I downloaded the Epic Games Launcher from the official website and installed it. Next there is a window saying Epic Games Launcher. It passes through "Please Wait" but stucks in "Downloading". It downloads upto 12% then just gets stuck there. The downloaded amount changes from 6.5 mb/92.0 mb to 6 mb/92.0 mb to again 6.5 mb/92.0 mb. I've tried to change my DNS, checked Proxy, disabled antivirus and Firewall, "-http=wininet", " OpenGl" but nothing works. When I put "-http=wininet" in the target field I get red sign while downloading and the speed drops to 0 b/s. Please help.

Product Version: Epic Games Launcher
