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"

Unable to update Unreal Engine 4.4

Report on being unable to update/launch the Unreal Engine after 4.4.1 went live, as requested by @UnrealEngine.

Two days ago, my launcher switched the button on 4.4 from Launch to Update. I clicked it, it downloaded about 1.3gB, installed and ... went back to the button being Update, downloading about 1.3gB.
I am not sure what update it is stuck on downloading now, but the update size is now somewhat around 980mb.

The only thing that works is launching the editor binary directly or using my own builds.

Hey Xaymar-

Here is a forum post that explains the recent 4.4 update. If you've not seen this yet I would suggest taking a look to help get things working for you again. Let us know if you have any other questions or need help with anything.

Hmm, that would explain the weirdness with the Update button before. But right now, I am stuck in an update loop, with an update 980mb large. I've tried reinstalling just to get stuck in the same loop again. Could there be some leftover data after uninstalling that could cause this?

I managed to get it out of the update loop by moving it on another hard drive. However, moving it back causes the same phenomen to appear again. At least I can use it now, I don't mind the longer loading times.
