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"

OSX Unreal Engine Install Failure

I'm running OSX 10.9.4. I've been able to download and run the UnrealEngineLauncher, and have (I believe) successfully downloaded Unreal Engine 4.4.0. However, when I click the yellow "Launch Unreal Engine 4.4.0" button, it briefly reads Launching, before returning to it's default state. Nothing else happens. If I look at my program doc, I can see a new icon for UE4Editor. When I click on it nothing comes up. The top menu bar reads Unreal Editor but has no drop downs. Cannot simply quit the program. Have to force quit.

I read some reports of people crashing on launch, but they appear to be further in the launch that I am getting.

Help is appreciated.

I believe your Mac may be too far below spec, but I'd like to be sure. Can you give us your full system information? You can find this under About This Mac > More Info. Everything there except your serial number, please. Thank you!

Macbook Pro Late 2011 you have to force it to low settings and it doesn't run great, so I'd bet yours will not be very usable.

MacBook Pro Mid 2009 2.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 8GB 1067 MHz DDR3 NVIDIA GeForce 9400M 256MB

It's not my primary machine, so I don't expect it to run like my equipment at the office, however I'm on the road a lot lately, so I was really hoping I could do at least some work with it. The fact that the Editor will not load at all makes me think there is something else going on.

Please open Terminal app and do this:

 cd /Users/Shared/UnrealEngine/4.4/Engine/Binaries/Mac/UE4Editor.app/Contents/MacOS

This should output some info to the terminal window that may help us figure out what's wrong. Thanks.
