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"

Epic Launcher Update Loop

Hi there

I tried starting the Epic Launcher today and it had to do an update of 93.2mb. It downloaded, restarted, I got alerted by Glasswire that the version had changed and then I got a second alert saying it had changed again just a second later after the update Initialised. It seems the update won't install. I've uninstalled the launcher, deleted it's folder and reinstalled it but I keep getting the same issue.

Any help would be great.

I have been getting the same issue ever since i downgraded to the May update for Nvidia/GeForce/GraphicsDriver because Paragon and Gears of War 4 were freezing on the most recent update.

The launcher will startup as normal, then get an 31.2MB to 92.6MB update, then restart and do it again forever. I was able to play the game 3 days ago, then the next day I've been getting the issue.

I can confirm that this happens. One of myh machine is currently hanging in an eternal loop where the launcher downloads the same update over and over again. Another machine did the update without problems. I restarted the machine and this time the launcher came up already patched Clearly there is some bug in the launcher update
