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"

Can we borrow code from Robo Recall for UE projects?

Hi, Robo Recall and it's mod package + source was released today and it contains a lot of cool and awesome stuff.

I know that Epic's standard line for copying their code is that - "as long as you're not looking and referring to the code while creating your own version of it, you should be 'ok'". Or at least that's the response I found with regards to engine source code and learning examples code for use in other game engines.

So the question then is - does it apply similarly in Robo Recall? Are we able to study the bits that we like, and figure out a way to replicate them in our own UE projects? And what determines if the replicated functionality is too similar to the original?

Robo Recall code may only be used for creating Robo Recall mods; it can't be used for other projects.

I'm not sure about the "standard line" you refer to above; you are welcome to use any or all of the engine code or example code (from Learning tab or Marketplace) in your own games under the terms of the EULA.

Odd. I've seen countless projects use the level assets of Robo recall in their promotional material.

In fact, I've even seen people borrow the pistol for their own projects. All over the place on the forums, and I remember seeing someone from Epic Staff saying 'it should be fine' if they use the assets.

Those uses are unauthorized. Use of Robo Recall content outside of Robo Recall mods is not authorized under our EULA:

Epic grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable license, during the period in which Epic makes access to the Robo Recall Content available to you, for a single User to use, reproduce, and modify the Robo Recall Content for the sole purpose of creating Robo Recall Mods for use with the Robo Recall video game

If you are able to locate that Epic staff comment, could you please provide a link so that we may clarify?
