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"

IOS IPA file size increased after upgrading to 4.6


Since I've managed to decrease binary size for android now it's time to IOS . I've noticed that file size with same project doubled after 4.5.1 upgrade to 4.6.1. I tested it with simple empty project builded with distribution settings. On 4.5.1 filesize is ~43 mb but on 4.6.1 and 4.7.2 it is over 84 mb! While checking internal structure of files I've noticed that UE4Game file and pak incresed in size (doubled). Any hints how to lower file size?

Unfortunately, you won't be able to drop it too much because as of 4.6 per Apple App Store requirements, both an ArmV7 and an Arm64 executable are required to be in the IPA. That is the reason the IPA has pretty much doubled as we now have two executables and each executable is about 30-35MB or so. We are working on ways to reduce the executable size, but in the end when uploading to the App Store you will need to have both executables.
