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"

Do I also need Subscription to get access to c++ source code.


I followed all the instructions at: https://www.unrealengine.com/en-US/ue4-on-github

and assigned my github username and even got an email that it is linked, however I don't see the unrealengine repository. Do I need the $19 subscription?

Hi atypic,

I have linked mine but it doesn't work. My epic username is agentx64. my github username is agentdark64. I even got a link success email, but going to www.github.com/EpicGames I only see the 2 default repos, not unrealengine. even when I'm logged in..

We identified an issue that's since been fixed. You should now be able to link your GitHub/Epic Games accounts.

We're aware of an error message that's displayed. Refresh the page, and you should see that the accounts were linked properly.

Please let us know if the issue persists.

Hi everyone,

We have noticed that there is currently an issue with the automated system that links Unreal Engine and GitHub accounts. We are working on getting the system working again, and are investigating options to replace the current system with a more robust one. We are also trying to see if we can determine what accounts have attempted to link with a GitHub account since this issue began, and whether we are able to put the link in place for those accounts.

Sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause.
