In this tutorial you will learn how to rename projects to a different name than what you currently have.
1. Open Unreal Engine Launcher
Open up "Unreal Engine Launcher" and navigate to your list of projects:
2. Go To Storage Location of a Project
Right click on the project thumbnail you want to change the name of and choose Show in Folder:
This will open the location where this project is stored.
3. Change .uproject File Name
In this folder change the name of .uproject file to the name you want:
Make sure this name is less than 20 characters.
4. Change Default Engine Config Entry
Then in the "Config" folder inside the same project folder, open the "DefaultEngine.ini"
Change Project Name under:
If you do not see this text: "[URL] GameName=ProjectName", then add it in manually.
5. Change Folder Name
Finally, change the name of the project folder to another name. This is not required but it helps to keep everything the same name.
The project will not show up in the Library > My Project section due to changed folder name. Follow this tutorial, starting with Step 3 to associate your project and point Unreal Engine Launcher to the correct path directory.
6. C++ Code References
