New Convenience Features for CRYENGINE Hub

Public user profile, automatic source code requests and Discord account link are coming to the hub, but the forum will be deprecated.

CRYENGINE Hub is receiving some cool new updates based on community feedback. The way how online communities interact is constantly changing and more immediate communication methods like Discord are being used in favor over older variants of community spaces like static forums. To adjust our CRYENGINE web presence, we are making some needed changes to the community space. Let’s dive right into it: 

Public User Profile 



CRYENGINE Hub is the centerpoint of the CRYENGINE community alongside our Discord server. To unite developers and give them something to show off, we are enabling the public dashboard for users who want to share their achievements with fellow CryDevs.  

To set up your new public profile: 

  • Register or log into on the top left corner of the screen.
  • Click on your user icon and choose ‘Dashboard’.
  • Choose ‘Public Profile’ on the left-hand-side.
  • If you want to make use of your public profile: Start filling out the form with info!
  • If you don’t want to make use of your public profile, just leave everything blank.

At the bottom of this page, you will find an option to enable or disable four profile for public view or just display it to registered and logged in users instead. Users can click on your user name when you comment on our news blog or review assets on the Asset Database and find your public profile, or you can link people to it directly by clicking ‘view profile’ on your dashboard page and share the link. 

Let us know which other cool achievements you would like to share with the world so we can consider them for future updates! 

GitHub Registration Automation 



We know that access to source code is important for the CRYENGINE developer community, and getting it fast can be crucial in the agile world of development. To expedite the process, we have created a way to request source code via your user dashboard.  

All you have to do is navigate to the user dashboard area at the top right of your account, then request to connect your GitHub account with CRYENGINE 5.7 LTS on GitHub and follow the steps promped to you. And it’s done! Please allow 48 hours for your request to be processed. 

Connecting your Discord Account 



As mentioned before, we see the internet shift towards aile community spaces. Where forums were a crucial place to gather and find information, users actually using static platforms like forums are dwindling according to our data. Therefore, we enable a new feature where CRYENGINE users can connect their Discord account with their CRYENGINE account and appear as Registered Users of CRYENGINE. You can do this in the same way as requesting GitHub access, just click on ‘Discord’ instead in your user dashboard. 

Forum Deprecation 

As mentioned before, we have seen the numbers of developers actually using the forum dwindling in recent months. We have decided to deprecate the community forums for CRYENGINE and instead focus more on Discord.  

We had good times with the CRYENGINE forum, but the platform is outdated and keeping it up takes time we would rather invest into other endeavors for the community. The forum will be turned offline after a grace period of two weeks after this post.  

All links to the public forum have been removed from as of today, but if there is any information you would still like to review, save or change on the good old forum, you can do that through this link
