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"

UE4 offline install for schools

In order to prepare a Windows 7 image for deployment, I am using VMware Workstation 10 to setup and install all software required by student and faculty at our school. So far UE4 is the only software which I cannot run from a virtual host client given its limitation with DirectX. It should be noted that Unity installs (and runs!) without issue. Is there any way to install the latest UE4 engine, even if I cannot open the frontend from a VMWare client? Alternatively is there any way to prepare a network deployment that does not involve downloading many GB of data from the web on each host? i.e. offline package with frontend AND engine.

Hey,

Schools need a special setup to install the engine on multiple machines. You can read more about it in the FAQ:
