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"

Stop Epic Games Launcher from opening/closing

When launching a Unreal Engine 4 project from the Epic Games Launcher, the launcher closes and automatically reopens when an Unreal Engine 4 project gets closed.

Is there a way to disable this behavior?

If not, I would request this as a feature in the settings.

Thank you very much

Product Version: Epic Games Launcher

This really gets in the way when you need to work with several projects open.

Its also counter intuitive when you want to use the store while waiting for your project to load. I had my position in the marketplace reset acouple of times because I keep forgetting about this. Really needs to be an option for keeping it open when you launch UE4, games Im not so fussed about it closing for.

No I didn't find a solution yet. Good points tho. Its most annoying when working with more than one open project and browsing through marketplace/learningtab or library. And every time it reopens, it has to reload the library or marketplace which takes about 5seconds on my end. Also the backslash does not work as intended. They should build the launcher like a website where you can go back and forward. The steam client is a good example of how a launcher should work (imo)
