Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Short answer: yes but with low quality. Try websites such as hwcompare to see how your graphics card ranks against the recommended specs. Your specs are similar to my laptop, so I think you can run it but don't expect high quality performance; you'll probably have to adjust scalability options in Quick settings, but it's not the end of the world. You can also close the 3D preview window while working on blueprints, materials etc. too. Your graphics card supports 10.1 which is good but the editor demands more from your computer than the games created by it, so expect some heating. I tried using external fans, it helps but I ended up building a new PC so I can take the full benefit of UE4. If you plan to work on small projects as a hobby your laptop would serve the purpose. I'd say just try it for a month and see for yourself; it's only 20 Euros (or dollars). You can cancel the membership afterwards and still keep the engine (no more updates though).
