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"

We are having the same issue. Not sure if we're missing something or if this is a bug. We were hoping to launch, this week, but this is game breaking; no one wants to give their players instructions on going into app permissions and enabling storage. Hopefully, someone has a fix!

I am encountering the same issue. Packaging the game for shipping and uploading to google play store. Anyone who downloads the game must manually turn on storage permissions in order for it to work. Desperately needing a solution.

In case you don't want/can follow the forum link, just check "Use ExternalFilesDir for UE4Game files?" on Project settings. Take a look to embedded below: image alt text

Does this not result in your save data getting deleted on any uninstall or future update?
