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"

Trouble accessing source code due to underscore in name?

Hello, AnswerWizards! I've been having trouble accessing the source code for UT4 due to what seems to be an underscore in my Unreal Engine subscription username, which unfortunately is not allowed in GitHub due to it only accepting dashes instead of underscores? I've already subscribed to the engine (for close to a month), and I recently tried to create a GitHub account with a different username as a result of the original having an underscore in the name, but I guess that original UE moniker is the magic ticket to get access to the GitHub UT source. Any advice to offer, or am I missing something likely obvious? Should I change my UE name (taking care to use "proper" punctuation), and if so, how? I didn't find where I could change it (if it's allowed). Thanks so much for your time and assistance!

Your Unreal Engine account is linked to the GitHub account you provide in your account settings. These don't have to match (mine are completely different).

You can find the "GitHub Account" setting here: https://www.unrealengine.com/settings

Success! Thanks so much Jamie! Yeah, turns out I put in my UE username in the GitHub Account Setting before I created an actual GitHub account, and when I tried to put the UE name into GitHub itself I came across the characters error and became confused. Knew it was probably a dumb mistake on my part... Thanks again!
