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"

Change Antialiasing method from C++

Is there a way to change the antialiasing method between FXAA and Temporal AA from C++? I'm trying to put this ability in a game settings menu, and so far I haven't seen a way to actually switch the method, say through GEngine->GameUserSettings.

It's possible. You can change console variable r.DefaultFeature.AntiAliasing by C++ code

And, sorry, how do I change a console variable from C++?

If you want to do some action and be sure that AA is set before then use

IConsoleManager::Get()->FindConsoleVariable(TEXT("r.DefaultFeature.AntiAliasing")) to get your AA variable, set callback for it https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/API/Runtime/Core/HAL/IConsoleVariable/SetOnChangedCallback/index.html and then set it https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/API/Runtime/Core/HAL/IConsoleVariable/Set/2/index.html

But read cautions before

No, thanks, the first one did it. Is there a built in way to make that persist, e.g. writing to DefaultEngine.ini, or do I have to roll my own?

Of course you can write to ini. Use global GConfig variable and its function SetInt() https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/API/Runtime/Core/Misc/FConfigCacheIni/SetInt/index.html and use another variable GEngineIni as Filename argument. It won't write to default ini, though, but it will write to user-specific ini which overrides default settings.

Check out the UGameUserSettings class. From there you can access anti-aliasing settings.
