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"

EULA clarification (Item 2: User License)

We are a small research lab associated with an academic institution, but housed in a hospital (not an academic institution). We are just gearing up to use Unreal Engine. I am a staff person in the lab, and I have downloaded and installed Unreal Engine on one computer (Computer A) using my epic user account.

We will soon have two co-op students joining our lab, one from January-April and another from May-August. I would like to assign both of them to use Computer A. Note that they will not overlap in time, so they will NOT be using the computer during the same time frame. Is it allowed for them both to use the currently installed version of Unreal on Computer A (with each logging into their own Epic accounts)? Or would I need to uninstall Unreal before each one begins work, and have each of them re-download and install it using their own accounts, in order for them to each use Computer A? I am having trouble understanding this requirement, if it is one, now that Unreal is free software.

Note that I will also be installing a separate instance of Unreal Engine for my own use on Computer B. Both of these computers are work computers in the same office.

Thank you for the clarification.

It's fine for both students to use the same install on Computer A. It's our preference that they log in with their own Epic accounts, and it sounds like that's your intention.
