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"

When plan expired, why still source but not release ?


I would like to know why, when the plan is expired, we still have the source ?

That's great, I'm not complain :) !! But I just don't know why that's not the same for releases in the launcher (we have just to compile from source to have the same result..) ?

NOTE : You're doing a great job, I'll probably apply again for a plan ! :-)

Best regards,

Hello, valx76!

Do you still have access to the EpicGames/UnrealEngine repository? You are allowed to keep your own personal fork, but you shouldn't have access to the EpicGames/UnrealEngine repository if your subscription ended.

Hello Jonathan,

I still have access to EpicGames/UnrealEngine (and UnrealTournament too) repository (with latest updates; the subscription stopped at 4.1, and I can download 4.4 sourcecode release), and my subscription has ended, I can confirm that !

So, it looks like it's a bug.. I have the same nickname at Github, if you need some more infos, ask me, if I can help you to solve that !

EDIT: Btw, I'm maybe in a particular case about the payment, the subscription stopped because of my credit card ending date, that can be the problem if you don't see someone else with that bug..

Hi Stephen,

Just for info, we can still get the Github sources, if you think that is fixed..

Hi valx76,

Yeah, we decided not to rush the fix for this in order to make certain that everything was handled appropriately. We are still working on it, and the update will occur in maybe another week or so.

Thanks again.
