Welcome all newcomers! I sense there are going to be a lot of new faces around here this week
I’m noticing a few of those who have never used UE4 before aren’t used to the cool launcher yet, so if you haven’t got the engine installed - this is the thread for you! Make sure you grab and install the launcher (big blue button at the top right of this page ;)), and then you can get started. Here’s a quick and dirty guide for getting the engine installed via the Launcher so you can jump right in.
Navigate to the ‘Library’ tab
- This is where all of your projects, your downloaded Marketplace content and Engine Installations can be managed and installed.
Click on ‘Add Versions’ in the ‘Engine Versions’ category
- You can have multiple versions of the engine installed at each time, just click the Add Versions button to create a new Engine slot, and select the version you want to install.
Select an Engine Version in the new Engine Slot, and hit install!
- In a few short minutes you’ll be ready to make awesome games!
While you wait for the engine to install, you can check out some of the following awesome links that’ll give you a good head start!
