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"

Bypass windows smartscreen?

I have packaged game for Windows 64 and send to a friend. Is this something that can be prevented eg. by signing? I don't recall that any game I've played would do that.

Hi Daniel K.,

This is extra security built into Windows 8 and Windows 10 to help fight against malware. Your friend can turn disable this on their machine as shown here: Turn off “Windows protected your PC” (Windows SmartScreen)

Otherwise, you would need to sign your UE4 project as a trusted developer for Windows. Here are three links that to get you started if you choose to pursue this option:

How to create an app package signing certificate

How to sign an app package using SignTool

How to package and distribute your apps

Ok I see, so it's not really UE4 related. Thanks for links.
