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"

Legals issues: Adding a blueprint editor in a webpage

I want to add a blueprint editor in a webpage above blueprintue.com for people who have an account on my website.
I read your legal information and I see that people have to read and accept your EULA when using parts of Unreal Engine.
Having a database of nodes in text version from Unreal Engine is it under the EULA acceptance?

If it is under EULA acceptance, I have a little problem:
For the moment you have no api to know if someone read and accept EULA, and no OAuth to make a connexion with an Epic Account

I try to found some solutions:
1/ Copy your EULA on my website and ask the member to accept your EULA. When your EULA changed, I update my website and I revert the blueprint editor until the member re-accept your EULA.
2/ Ask the member to link his github account and check if he had an access to the private Git repository EpicGames/UnrealEngine
3/ Ask to the member to livestream his epic games launcher for seeing is EULA is accepted or not
4/ Having a whitelist with only epic forums members

If you have some tips about that I will be happy to hear that.

Product Version: UE 4.16

It's not clear from your comment whether your website will have or contain only original content or content (including code) coming from Epic. Can you comment on that?

It will contain the nodes from Unreal Engine in text format. No .uasset files, just plain text.

For example you have a node called PrintString, it's from Unreal Engine. I will have in my database the plain text of that blueprint node.

Does that come from the Editor or Developer folders of the engine?

I will copy the text version manually from Unreal Engine when I am in a Blueprint Editor with the copy paste feature, so some nodes comes from the Editor I guess.

Looks like this is all your own code, which is fine. If you paste code from our built-in editor that's a problem, but doesn't seem like that's intended.
