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"

Must Products show Unreal's Logo?

I have a question concerning the excerpt following from section 11 of the Unreal® Engine End User License Agreement:

"You agree to retain and reproduce in all copies of the Licensed Technology the copyright, trademark, and other proprietary notices and disclaimers of Epic and third parties as they appear in the Engine Code and the Content."

Some games, specifically "Dishonored" or "XCOM: Enemy Unknown", display a (customised) logo of Unreal Engine similar to this one (https://i.ytimg.com/vi/wzvnbtQWS9c/maxresdefault.jpg). I would like to inquire about "[reproducing] in all copies of the Licensed Technology". Does this imply that any product utilising the technology must display a logo such as the aforementioned ones?

As I am aware only a proprietary statement is required to be added to the product's credits, or appropriate alternatives as listed here(https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/415342/epics-credits-on-splash-screen.html), so why are some games, as named above, display the logo? or am I missing something?

Product Version: UE 4.11

The AAA games you mention are the subject of a custom engine license with Epic (I won't go into the specific terms) - they don't license the engine under the EULA.

The EULA does not contain a trademark license to show the UE4 logo or similar on the splash screen. If a EULA licensee is interested in doing that, they need to obtain an additional trademark license here.

The bit you quote from the EULA means that you're not allowed to remove copyright and trademark notices from within the engine itself. There is a separate requirement under the EULA though to provide credit to Epic in the form indicated in your game credits though.
