We all know the issue of adding a line -OpenGL in the Epic Launcher properties. Now I have issues with an Update loop followed by an Unsupported Graphics Cards issue after the Update Verification. I’m using Win7, but my GPU is compatible. I’ve been using it without any issue for months and three seconds later, this problem happens out of the blue.
All my assets and Blueprint kits are in my vault.
I’ve tried everything (-OpenGL, reinstall, delete Web Cache, etc). Any new ideas of how to fix it?
You could try posting in this thread as well, as it contains more bugs / gripes related to Launcher + Win7.
Haven’t gotten the Launcher to work since last year. Epic need to offer a Dev-only Launcher w/o all the bs. :mad:
Still can’t open epic games . Windows 7.after the update of epic games get downloaded it shows verifying and then it restarts and shows unsupported graphics card error.tried opengl and still ain’t working
@Unreal_Josh Epic please offer a Launcher-for-Linux for UE developers, or allow marketplace assets + engine downloads to be done using just a simple web browser - nothing more!
Combining a games launcher and engine downloader into one, and making it windows only, was probably the worst decision Epic has ever made, seriously… Even just the security vulnerabilities on their own, make this a horrible decision… Honeypot for Hackers, hello?
Hey guy! After many months, there was no fix to Windows 7, so I’ve upgraded to that Windows 10 ■■■■. Windows 7 users have been abandoned by many platforms and developers. We have no choice but accept it.
I really, REALLY hope Epic create a Dev-only Launcher. I don’t want to be a hostage of players and their needs… for other games.
Most of these things don’t work with Win 7 anyway.
I shifted to Win10. No choice.
Can’t skip the marketplace. I bought critical kits like Third Person Shooter Kit to finish my game (merging kits here and there, you know). I’m a game designer with an artistic base, so my weak point is coding. I’m solo developing until I finish my vertical slice to show it to investors. Then I can hire a programmer to help. Until there, I’m totally dependent on the marketplace.
(Don’t get me wrong. I’m a fan of Epic Games. Thanks to them I can make the game I want. I think Tim Sweeney deserves to be a billionaire because he provides a change in many lives, improving the whole industry. Also, he needs all this net worth because of this. We all know this, more resources, more power of execution).
