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"

Launcher re-downloads entire installer on resuming installation

I'm an early adopter and installing UE 4.11 preview upgrades whenever it comes out. Today I made the mistake of typing into a browser window while the UE upgrade were installing in the background. Suddenly a confirmation dialog popped up and I managed to cancel it instantly with one of my keypresses.

We would like to ask for one simple thing here:

Please do not re-download the 1.5GB installer when the user clicks on Resume. It is supposed to continue the installation. Ideally it should just re-launch that very last installer the poor user managed to cancel. For me it was not a big deal on a 100Mbps connection, but many people are not that lucky to have this luxury.

Thank you.
