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"

[Closed] Fortnite Launcher Ended Prematurely.

Ok so, I was attempting to download Fortnite earlier (I know it's not specs because I've downloaded it before) and after opening, I got an error message saying "Epic Games Launcher is already running, exit to continue." It had the option to ignore, retry, or exit. I tried all three and when I chose exit it shut the launcher, retry gave me the message repeatedly, and ignore made it look like it was loading then it said the launcher had ended prematurely. I have no clue what to do I've tried 3 times.

As you can see in the title, this is NOT a fortnite forum but rather the forum for problems related to the game engine used to create fortnite. go to fortnite's forum for help.
