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"

Having the same problem accessing the Unreal Engine source on Github. I've entered my github account on the UE account page, but EpicGames never shows up in my Github account.

I have tried on a Mac as well as on my PC using IE and get the same message that there are not public repositories for EpicGames!

I was having the same issue. And the thing is: you have to use the github username in your EpicGames profile, BUT you also need to have the same mail addresses in both accounts. For instance:

Github: email: johndoe@mail.com user: johndoe

EpicGames account email: johndoe@mail.com github username: johndoe

This way you'll receive the EpicGames invitation for sure... I just did, :)

Howdy Able Studios,

Just a quick follow up question that I have. I can see that you have a GitHub account and a Unreal Engine account and have placed your username from GitHub into your Unreal Engine Account. Are you able to see the repositories or are you trying to find them? If you are trying to find them, you can access them by going to this link: https://github.com/EpicGames/UnrealEngine and selecting the Releases tab shown here:

Let me know if this is the answer you are looking for. If not, please let me know how far you are able to get with GitHub and I will be able to help you further.

Thanks and have a great day!

Are you signed into GitHub when you attempt to access that page? This page popped up for me until I signed into the GitHub site.

Howdy Able Studios,

Just a couple of test case scenarios that may help. Have you cleaned out your cache and/or cookies and then attempted to access GitHub? Also, have you attempted to access GitHub from a different web browser then your default?

If both of those tests do not work, I would recommend getting into contact with GitHub. From what the photos that you have provided are showing, it seems like the could possibly be on their side.

Ok, I was able to get Epic Games to show up under the Organizations list on my Github account page. What I was doing wrong was instead of using my github username, I was entering the full email address used to login to github. You need to enter only the github username (Display name) on the UE account page. Hope this helps.
