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"

So Can I develop android games with UE4 using my current low end PC?

     think I asked this before however I am wondering something.

     Say I was creating a 2D Platformer or a RTS game, will my PC be suitable?

     Its Pentium G 3220

     4GB RAM and radeon HD 4870

     For the record almost anything I download from the marketplace and run when I hit play button in UE4 it runs just fantastic I get smooth frames even on EPIC. I am just pointing this out I don't actually have a problem running UE4 games they all run fine even though my system is pretty old. The GPU used to be a high end gpu back in the days so maybe thats why?

     But yeah considering this, say I was catering also for a android port with smartphone in mind, would you then say my system is more than adequate?

     Please note I am a student and just solo developing and learning. People are saying get i7 and all this drama but honestly I don't think these people understand anything because some of them recommended that the DX 11 integrated GPU in a i7 is better than my 4870 and I know this to be just wrong. My HD 4870 just destroys any intel IGP. So when people tell me I need a i7 or even i5 I tend to take it with a grain of salt honestly.

     maybe people are just not understanding how small the scope of my project is? when I download all those completed projects on the marketplace it runs butter smooth on epic except unreal caves demo that runs smooth on medium.

     As a student I am really short on cash and as such I would prefer no to waste money on something I would not use.

     My target is to basically develop a game you would find with graphics quality of Unity PRO engine. I am not even looking for the full power of UE4 at all, infact since I want to focus on android games I would think my system is more than capable? I mean come on guys my Nexus 4 is nowhere near my desktop no matter the fact that my desktop is old. I am pretty sure its more powerful tham my cellphone right?

I run it on a Core2Duo with a GT 9600M. It runs fine, all though I am not running heavy levels at this stage.

It will probably run fine for you as well, if you have enough ram (10GB +)...
