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"

Epic Games Launcher stuck on "Please wait while we start your update"

Completely stuck no matter what I do, I get this error message every single time.

I have tried :



Uninstall and reinstall

Opening several ports (5222 and the likes)

Nothing is working, emails don't get responded to, and no solution on the internet has proved useful at all.

If ANYONE at Epic Games would help, I would be very thankful, or anyone that knows how to fix this annoying issue causing me to not be able to play anything at all.

Hey Moreo,

Have you tried checking to see if you have a weak internet connection? Also, if you are urgently needing to work on a project, you can launch the UE4 project without needing to use the Epic Games launcher I believe. Go to the folder the project is saved in and double click on the (.UnrealProject) File. Hope this helps! :)

I have a near perfect internet connection, and prior to about 3 days ago, I had no problems loading the launcher. I kid you not, I woke up one morning and the launcher didn't work anymore. At this point its more annoying that there is no solutions out there and EpicGames hasn't helped at all.

It could be a glitch. I would just hold tight, I'm sure they will get back with you and run a patch on it sooner then later. :)
