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"

Recomend a HTML host

What hosting companies do people use to host and load HTML packaged games? I'm having a lot of trouble with HostGator - I've tried a lot of different solutions but I can't get compressed files to load. This is going to be a problem with the stuff I'm making gets a bit bigger.

What web host can I use that's just going to work? I've been looking at Amazons AWS free trial because it's free but there seems to be a myriad of options after that..

I had successful experience with Amazon Web Services. If you decide to go with AWS, there are options inside of project settings that allow you to directly upload builds to AWS S3.

Cool, I've been looking at that - is it simple enough? It's easy to upload and load uncompressed stuff with my current host through a file manager, just the compressed files seem to be a problem - I want to work on UE4 not my web host :) Maybe I should check out the free trial.

Yes, it is really simple. As you mentioned, the free trial will be sufficient enough to prove itself. And even after that, if you use AWS only for hosting rarely visited UE4 demos, it will cost a fraction of other host providers. (Under $2 monthly most of the time)

I've uploaded to AWS - I'm getting this error when I try to view the webpage Downloading failed: HTTP error 404 on file UE4Game-HTML5-Shipping.jsgz

What could that be from? The file is definitely there

AWS has a concept of private/public files, so perhaps the file is not set to be publicly available? See http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonS3/latest/user-guide/set-object-permissions.html

I have the compressed files working through AWS at the moment - now I'm failing to point my domain to the AWS hosted files! God damn it all.
