Is there any way to directly download the unreal engine?
If you would like to link your Epic Games Account to a Github account, you can download the engine's source directly. Please note that this will require using Visual Studio and quite a bit of time as you'll need to compile the source after downloading it to have access to the engine. If you would like to do this, this tutorial should be able to help:
If you would rather try to troubleshoot your launcher issues, please go to http://help.epicgames.com/ for assistance relating to the launcher.
Have a nice day!
