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 with Xbox Live integration for Windows


we've been told by Microsoft that there is a UE4 version with Xbox Live support for Windows, and that we should request Epic for access. On contacting support we were told to ask here on AnswerHub, so here goes.

Is there an UE4 version with Xbox Live support for Windows? How can we get access to it?

We already have access to the Xbox One and PS4 versions of the Engine through the FTP, in case that makes any difference.


Product Version: UE 4.13

Hi Jorge.

I'm sorry for the redirection you have been getting between Microsoft and Epic. I hope I can give some clarity without adding to it much more! But first a disclaimer that I am not intimately familiar with this process because Epic does not directly support UWP or Xbox Live for Windows, that is all managed by Microsoft. Epic's role is only in granting access to the XB1 console code via the FTP, which you say has been completed.

I'd like to direct you to either of these links:

At the bottom of either page, you will notice:

"Xbox Live

Xbox program partners can also request an Xbox Live-ready UWP branch of the Unreal 4 Engine through their Microsoft Developer Account Manager (DAM)."

According to the official information, you will need to get access to the Xbox Live branch via your Microsoft Account Manager. I hope this helps set you on the right path and you can continue development soon.

Hi Stephen,

thanks for the reply. Knowing that Epic does not directly support Xbox Live for Windows, we will take the issue to Microsoft again and see if we can sort it out.
