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"

Are you finding it ok to move about in within the editor?

If yes, detach the preview window and make it full screen, then see if your framerate drops then.

I found that although my computer could handle the editor window when it's smaller, it was ok, but then when I tried to launch my game (in full screen) my pc wanted to die.

The way I got around this was adding a quick blueprint to take the quality of the some other settings down (Just like in a game where you turn down the graphic settings).

Have a look at this forum post. The blueprint example he provides to set the scalability settings at startup worked fine for me. Yes, you loose quality but unfortunately if your pc can't handle it then that's the way it is.

2048×2048 is very high.
