I searched around but couldn’t find a definitive answer to this.
I’d like to be able to download the engine binaries (the same downloaded by the Epic Games Launcher), but from a zip file or similar.
Problem is that I have a metered connection in a rural area and the ~10GB+ download would eat up my month’s bandwidth cap.
I have permission to download files from another location which has an enterprise internet connection, but I can’t install the launcher there to download the engine and just copy the folder to a jump drive.
If I download the source from github and build it as is, can I then copy the resulting binaries to where the Epic Games Launcher points to for it’s engine binaries?
Any other suggestion?
- Update -
If anyone else is in a similar situation. I tried the suggestion from Nachtmahr below, and it was sufficient to build the engine on my local machine. I haven’t figured out how to link the engine to the Epic Games Launcher yet though.
