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"

Why is UE crashing when I attempt to launch?

I am attempting to launch UE 4.8.3 for my class that I am taking this semester, but every time I click on launch I receive a crash report window and the engine never opens. I am running on macOS High Sierra 10.13.3. I need help quickly please! I have assignments due and need the engine to run

I am receiving the following crash report:

This is a known bug with High Sierra and unfortunately you will have to use a more recent version of UE (4.15 or upwards) or downgrade to Sierra 10.12
