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"

The only way Epic Games distributing the Assets is the Launcher. I'm sorry, but unfortunately, it's not available for Linux, as this platform is not considered as supported yet.

So far the only way is to run the Windows. You could use someone's PC with windows to log on to Launcher by using own credentials. After running the launcher You will be asked to accept EULA, that permits You to download and use the assets.

Developing on Linux is tough path, as there are many things not yet completed. More questions could be asked on IRC:

Thanks for letting us know. We do not have any Windows machines here. We are standardized on Linux with some Macs.

Would it be an option for someone else to download the free samples from EPIC and upload them in the GITHub (just like the other starter content)? That would be really helpful and at least gives us some of the standard materials to play with.

Launcher uses UE4 engine, and probably won't run under VMware.

Epic actually has an internal build of the launcher that runs under Linux, but they won't release it, even though it would be a simple thing to do. Probably more then likely still beholden to Microsoft and their corporate lobbyists to stifle any development on Linux.
