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"

Hello, I am following the step by step video tutorial (Downloading and building UE4 Source). I have a UE4 account and I successfully created my github account as well. I have successfully updated and saved my github account in my UE4 account settings. I have double check that my github username was correct, saved the changes. When I refresh my github account, Epic Games organisation does not show. Thanks for your help Bertrand

Are you sure you have logged-into GitHub with the same account that you have setup in unrealengine dashboard? You must log into unrealengine.com and make sure the github username is setup correct. Youy should give the username not the email you used to register in github.

If everything is setup correctly, you will see this when you access the url:

I have signed out of both unreal and github. Signing back in unreal only let's me use my email which is fine, I guess. Signing back in github I made sure I was using my username, and still have the same issue once logged in. If I go to the following URL: https://github.com/EpicGames I get the following message in the middle of the page: This organization has no public repositories.

At this point should I try to delete my github account and create a new one? It is not the first time I am setting accounts on the web (trust me), I made sure over and over that I was doing thing correctly, and it is pretty straight forward. Thanks again for your time, patience and help. Bertrand

Yes, I would suggest creating a new github account and try with that. It could be something simple.

  • Logout of unreal and github

  • Create a new github account, login, verify the email address (just to be safe)

  • Logout of github.

  • Come back and log-into unreal. Goto dashboard and setup the new github username. 'Save'

  • Goto github and log-in again. Does it work now?

Maybe I miss understood something, Do I have to get the $19/mo subscription, because that I did not do. Do you have to pay the subscription to learn unreal? Maybe that is the issue I have? If it does not matter I will proceed with erasing and creating a new github account. Thanks

Yes, ofcourse you do. I should have asked that first! You MUST have an active subscription to see the source code in GitHub

However once you download the source code and make a backup in your system, you can still use it after your subscription has expired. But you will not get new updates.

If you are only planning to use the UnrealEditor (ie not interested in SourceCode), then you can downlaod the editor separately after paying for the subscription. Similar to the source code, you can use the Editor even after your subscription has expired and release games with it.

Thanks for all your help and tips on how to deal with the subscription. Sorry about this miss understanding. Thanks again, Bertrand
