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"

How to download the engine after subscription expired?

This questions might have been asked by someone else already, but I could not find it.

So I have an active subscription at the moment. I have downloaded engine version 4.1. Suppose I cancel my subscription after this. Now I understand I can still use the engine and publsih games with an inactive subscription. But what do I do if I re-install my OS. Do I need to reactivate my subscription to download engine V4.1?

Or can I simply run the original .msi file and will the launcher install V4.1?

After your subscription ends, you can still download the launcher from the unrealengine.com account page. In the launcher, you will be able to continue to download the versions you had access to as a subscriber. However, your GitHub access to UE4 will end with your subscription, so if you need the source, be sure to download and archive the source from GitHub before your subscription lapses.

I was wondering, if you unsubscribe and you don't have the github access, suppose you modify the engine... how the changes will be returned??? I was just wondering about that "case".
