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"

Android Black Screen of Death (i.e. no Splash Screen)

Is there anyway to get a splash screen image or movie to display in Android versions during the app boot up process?

Our app sits there for roughly 45 seconds with nothing but a black screen. I call this the Black Screen of Death because potential customers are never going to wait that long, and will think the app is broken.

I have seen suggestions to play an intro movie via the Project Settings->Movies config, but others have said it is "not implemented in Android yet", and my testing proves that out.

Is there anyway through the AndroidManifest.xml file to show at least a still image while Unreal 4 boots? Or, is it possible to load a starter map with nothing in it but a splash screen, and then load the full map in the background (assuming of course that the starter map would pop up within a second or two)?

We are using Unreal Engine v4.5.1

I remember having the same issue and my workaround was, as you suggested, a starter map that simply rendered a static loading screen (this map loads instantly because the only content it needs to load is your static image). After a small delay I made it load the actual map (can't remember name of the method/blueprint node). The static loading screen stays until the main map loaded.
