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"

Is there any way to improve performance?

Let's start by stating my hardware, I have a laptop with a GeForce 650M and a Core i7 3630QM.

Now this ain't exactly high-end desktop hardware, but still far better than what I would want my minimum system requirements to be.

But even if I turn off all the fancy features, have only basic shaders with just an albedo map and render only a very basic scene like the top-down example (which mostly consists of some 10 cubes and a low-poly player model) my performance is still only around 30FPS in the viewport in a nearly empty scene.

I can get 60 by turning off anti aliasing and almost all graphics features, but surely of such a simple scene I would expect far more.

Of course it's not going to run at 60FPS with all the bells and whistles on, but surely there could be graphics settings to turn off the physically based shaders if a game doesn't require them.

I would be very satisfied if I could fallback to the mobile featureset on PC if performance isn't adequate, that should allow it to run on a much greater variety of hardware.

This has me very worried that no matter what I do, a game made with Unreal Engine 4 will simply not run on affordable hardware, and I have cancelled my subscription.
