With the release of the Epic Games Store and the impact of games like Fortnite, Epic Games' launcher has made some pretty big changes in 2018 and into 2019. While there are still easily selectable categories for normal development (using the base unreal engine editor) for those of us wanting access to mod kits to mod our favorite games, the way to access, install, and launch them has changed. This tutorial will show you how to do all that.
The picture above shows the main page that is shown upon logging into the Epic Game's launcher from a fresh install and login. We're currently in something of a discover category, which is not where we want to be.
Step 1: Go to the Store!
Instead of the modding tab like it once was a part of, the Robo Recall mod kit (the mod kit used for this tutorial)
is actually in the store! To find it, we need to first go to the Epic Games Store. Click on the menu button in the top right corner of the window to open the menu and select "store" to go there.
Step 2: Scrolling
Once you're in the store you'll need to scroll all the way down to the bottom. This is where the mod kits live! Choose the one you need and click on it (Robo Recall in this case).
Step 3: Get the Mod Kit!
this will bring you to a small product page about each mod kit! We want to install it right away, so hit the big blue "Install" button and follow the prompts to get started!
Step 4: This Book Is Overdue
Once you have the mod kit installed, you shouldn't have to go to the store every time to launch it. Simply hit the menu button again and go to the "library" tab and it should show up there. Just click it's launch button to open it from now on! ^^ (it will replace the "install" button in the second picture above)
and that's how you find, install, and launch an Ureal Engine mod kit! I hope this helps everyone out! Best of luck, and I'll speak with you all next time, Agents!
