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"

Epic Games Launcher broken

Epic Games Launcher isn't working properly, the interface is stuck at home in a blank state, the only menu I can access is the store, which requires me to first select Library, then hit the one option that pops up from there. I have content I need to add to an Unreal Engine project, but literally can not access it. alt text

I had this and i think i found a fix. It's caused by corrupted temp files in C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\EpicGamesLauncher. Make sure the launcher is closed (also check in task manager) and delete everything inside this folder, then relaunch the program.

Yup that worked for me. Thanks NΛWRΛM. You can tell you deleted the correct files when you load up the launcher and it doesn't auto log you in if you had "sign in automatically" checked.

i fixed this issue by reopening the epic games installer and letting it repair the damaged program. the prerequisite launcher (on the windows 10 uninstall it shows the epic games logo faded out) is necessary to have it work properly. when the installer runs the might be a auto run program blocked my either your anti-malware or your anti-virus. if you have clicked block and remember the epic games launch error will appear. i first restarted my computer. disabled my anti-malware (only for enough time to finish the update process of the repair on the installer. everything has worked ok since then. only did this last night so i havent turned my pc off yet so dont know if this has to be repeated every start up.

Hi, so I was struggleing with this problem as well. After giving up and doing what the other answers recommended (Which didnt work for me) I tried something which I dint think would work. I uninstalled Epic Games and all of its data including the games (It should automnatically un-install the games if you uninstall in the control panel). Reinstalling Epic games I routed the download to a separate folder I made called "Epic games" that was just in "C:" (The same folder with Program files and Program files (x86). ANyways, I launched it and BOOM! it was fixed. DOnt know why but it did.
