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"

License and Royalty Questions (after reading FAQ)

I have read and understood the flat 5% royalty fee that Epic has for Unreal 4. We have been using it for development on our project and will continue doing so, however I am curious if there is any additional legal work that needs to be done while in development, and prior to our release/kickstarter. Don't want to incur any legal issues or step on any toes.

Also as far as paying royalties, should we only worry about submitting royalty reports once the game begins earning revenue, from both pre-sales and unit sales, or should we be submitting reports throughout development to prove that the game is not making revenue?


Product Version: UE 4.14

This page should get you the info you need. You don't need to notify us prior to first monetization, and you don't need royalty reports before then either.
