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"

Unreal Engine Launcher will not launch/show

I was recently trying to get the Unreal Engine to install but couldn't even open the launcher. I have now determined what the cause of the problem is. I have a DisplayLink USB monitor, and the drivers for this monitor cause issues with UE4.

I am unsure as to what the issues are, but I am following a thread on the DisplayLink forums: http://www.displaylink.org/forum/showthread.php?p=74718#post74718

If anybody has any advice as to how to make UE4 work with my DisplayLink monitor's drivers still installed, please let me know. I understand this is mainly DisplayLink's fault, however I decided to post this here incase anybody else is having similar issues.

I would attach my UE4 log file but it is completely useless (it literally freezes the log file halfway through a line of output thats complaining about a missing file, that clearly hasn't downloaded yet because the launcher hasn't run for the first time)
