I purchased a project from Marketplace but have been unable to download it because of an invalid character error.
The project’s name is: “Real dynamic water - Create lake, river, pool, any you want”
It’s available here: https://www.unrealengine.com/marketplace/en-US/slug/real-dynamic-water-create-lake-river-pool-any-you-want
In the Epic Games Launcher, when I go to Unreal Engine > Library > Vault and try to download / create the project, I get a red error message telling me:
“Project names may not contain the following characters: -”
Unfortunately, the auto-generated directory path being created, which is based on the name of the Marketplace asset and thus includes the invalid hyphen “-” character isn’t something I can modify. I can change the parent directory, but not the lowest level directory which is the problem, because that’s being auto-generated by the Epic Games Launcher. This is happening on both Windows 7 and Windows 10.
The net effect is that it now seems to be impossible for me to download this asset from the Marketplace. Is there some way to download assets other than through the Epic Games Launcher, or some way to change the default directory name that gets created so it’s not something invalid?
