Make shortcut to Launch Uncooked Unreal game

What happens if you want to run an Unreal game, from a shortcut, but you havent cooked it into an .exe? This Navigate to the Unreal editor e.g

C:\Program Files\Epic Games\UE_4.21\Engine\Binaries\Win64\UE4Editor.exe

Make a shortcut, put on the desktop and rename to ‘YourGameName’.

Edit the shortcut properties so that in Target you add the full path to your game uproject file put it inside “quote marks” and add -game after that.

Save and you’re done

here’s mine:

“C:\Program Files\Epic Games\UE_4.21\Engine\Binaries\Win64\UE4Editor.exe” “C:\Users\bruno\Documents\2019\UNREAL_PERFORCE_DEPOT\ExpandedField\ExpandedField.uproject” -game
