How To: Epic Launcher & Fortnite Deployment
Posted by Panagiotis Mantzouranis on 10 November 2018 04:01 PM

NOTE: IF DEPLOYMENT FAILS, DELETE SOURCE (SERVER) FOLDER:

C:\Program Files\Epic Games\Fortnite\FortniteGame\PersistentDownloadDir

 

This tutorial will show you how to manually deploy Epic Launcher & Fortnite on your client PCs.

  • First, install and update Epic Launcher & Fortnite on your server PC. Alternatively, you can install the game on a client PC and manually copy the files to your server

1. C:\Program Files (x86)\Epic Games\Launcher\ Epic Launcher files
2. C:\ProgramData\Epic\ Fortnite update status
3. C:\Program Files\Epic Games\Fortnite\ Fortnite game files

No registry information is neccessary for the game to work

  •  Create 3 deployment profiles, one for each folder. The files should be deployed on the same destination folder.

 

If the game is deployed to a different destination, Epic game launcher will not detect it.

If you need to deploy the game to a different destination folder and/or drive, you need to do the following:

  1. Create a new task-junction
  2. Add the original Fortnite folder path in source path of junction
  3. Add the target Fortnite folder path in Destination Path of junction
  4. Add the junction task in Pre-deploy tasks of the game
