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"

Can UE4 be installed on Mac OS High Sierra?

When initially downloading Unreal Engine, all goes well, except I cannot open file to start installation of Unreal Studio. Is UE4 supported on Mac OS High Sierra? or just Mac OS X

Product Version: UE 4.19

Had Sierra, was going to install 4.22.1. I got the warning that Unreal Engine requires macOS 10.13.5 or higher and that I may lose data if I continue with Sierra 10.12.x.

I upgraded to High Sierra 10.3.6. Now when I open Epic Games Launcher and try installing 4.22.1, Unreal Engine shows up as Not Installed.

When I click on the drop-down arrow to install, nothing happens.

no response

Any idea how to proceed?

Just a follow up. I've since upgraded to Mojave on a new Mac machine, so I cant speak to the compatibility of UE4 on only machines or OS's.

I believe, starting with UE4.18 - the minimum OS requirement is High Sierra. Pretty big hiccup for those folks who don't want to / can't upgrade from Sierra. :( https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-US/GettingStarted/RecommendedSpecifications

can you install an earlier version of unreal? like 4.20 or 4.10?
