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"

Office Holiday

Epic Games' offices will be on holiday from June 22nd to July 7th. During this period support will be limited. Our offices will reopen on Monday, July 8th. 

Should I put my projects elsewhere seeing that a special character may cause problems?

Looking at this question tells me that the "é" in the filepath to my documents is what's causing my thumbnails to not display properly (picture).

Since my projects are in the default location (In my case: "C:\Users\Cédric\Documents\Unreal Projects") which contains the character "é", does that cause problems other than the thumbnails thing?

Also, can I move the marketplace examples I have downloaded to a different folder and have the launcher know without having to re-download?

Thank you.

This is a known issue from a few weeks ago and our developers were looking into it, but it is showing that it was fixed in version 4.1.1. Try updating to the newest version and let me know how it goes. If its still an issue, we will keep looking into it.

Thanks, TJ

Didn't even know there was a 4.1.1... I downloaded it, redownloaded Tappy Chicken and also created a new project to check if the thumnails were OK, still all white :/.

Don't worry about taking your time, I can still put all my projects in "C:\Program Files\Unreal Engine\Projects" or something like that.
