hi friends
here is my general
if i download UE4 there are download a 60 mb login id (EPIC GAMES).
after that this launcher is install UE4.
the question is
1) is installed a file setup file like setup.exe? or something for example - udk3 setup
2) for installing , it take internet connection ,when installetion is completed ; i mean ,whenever my computer will formated (even time) will take inernet connection?
3)may be possible to store installed files in a hard disk for future usage after formatting system .

MY ENGLISH IS NOT GOOD
PLEASE REPLY

  1. When the EPIC GAMES LAUNCHER is installed, go to the Unreal Engine Tab and from there you can install the latest version.

Here is a link to the Unreal Engine 4 documentation for installing the engine: https://docs.unrealengine/latest/INT/GettingStarted/Installation/index.html

This link is to the “Getting Started” section: https://docs.unrealengine/latest/INT/GettingStarted/index.html

  1. The launcher needs an internet connection to be linked to things such as the marketplace.
    So in short, so long as you have the launcher running it will be searching for a connection.

  2. Yes an no.
    I wouldn’t recommend it though.
    I believe you COULD theoretically do it, there’s just no point.
    If you re-format your drive all you need to do is re-install UE4 from the launcher.

You will, should, and can back-up your CUSTOM files (anything you created in UE4) as those will not stay within the launcher if the system is re-formatted.

If you need additional help feel free to ask.

If anyone has anything to add to my answers, please do so.

I just have the forums in my bookmarks. (the ones always at the top of the page.)
You have to do that if you use the Linux version. Also… I have one last thing to say… VIVE LA UNREAL 4!

hi friend jason,
if i installed it what is size of installation file?
thanks to reply

Around 7GIG I think? Might be 11GIG though.

If there is a way to change it, I haven’t found it.

The one thing the UDK forums have over the UE4 forums is simple things such as this.
Maybe I’m just blind and the option to change the sorting is in the settings.

I’ll have a look.

Using the launcher, 4.7.6 is 11 GBs for me.

Wow that is pretty big! But worth the download wait!
