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"

Frame Rate Drops & Blueprint Time Increasing

I'm trying to figure out why my frame rate goes from ~75 in game to ~20 in a matter of only a couple minutes. I don't have anything in my scene except for a few meshes and 2 particle effects. When I open up the STAT GAME console command, it appears that both the Tick Time and Blueprint Time are rapidly increasing. Is there anything that causes such a decrease in performance?

You use tick event?

Yes. In several different blueprints.

that might be the cause blueprint is not very goood for huge tick operations, try testing around this, you can also try profiling ;]

Well I've cut down the number of functions using tick and the performance has increased slightly. Is there something else similar that I could use to update functions? Maybe a retrigger-able delay?
