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"

Animation Starter pack not working in 4.17


As the title says, the Animation Starter Pack don't work in 4.17.

I'm really curious about why the animations won't work anymore. It would be very nice if someone at Epic spends a little time explaining what has changed or/and broken... And most important! What things we should prevent to be able to update engine versions and keep our animations in the future!

Meanwhile, can anyone point me to some similar free material for prototyping?


*Edit: ARTv1 is not supported in 4.17 too.

Product Version: UE 4.17

I respond to myself.

How to use the Animation Starter pack in 4.17: Install 4.16 -> Create a project with 4.16 and add the pack -> Migrate the folder with the animations to the content folder of the 4.17 project.

Seems to work.

Hey! How were you able to install 4.16? I have only the 4.17 version. I just want to try the Animation Starter Pack. Thanks!

In the Unreal launcher you can chose which version of Unreal you want to run. (It should be an "add version" button if you only have one installed.

Look at this post if you don't find the button: https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/529542/how-to-add-an-old-version-to-my-launcher-there-app.html
