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"

Epic Crashes Each Time Trying to Download ARK Dev Kit (Windows 7)

I am not so sure, if this epic "Game Launcher" is really so epic - EACH TIME I am starting to download the ARK Dev Kit, it crashes after the download has finally started. Quite some impressive software, this EGL.

I need to find out, if there is even a way to run the EGL without crashing. Is there? Or, if not, is there any direct download link that allows me to download the ARK Dev Kit directly, instead of not being able to download it with an always crashing EGL?

Here's what this Crashing Game Launcher tells me upon each crash:

MachineId:E1712CA045BD58F154F598A6889DCCF2 EpicAccountId:1a80b3625a874facaab3d4c3c449d56a You do not have any debugging symbols required to display the callstack for this crash.

And seriously, since this software is not capable of downloading the ADK, I really need a direct download link. Thanks.
