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"

Macbook Pro 2015

Hello, I wanted to ask you if its possible to run Unreal Engine and develop games on newest Macbook Pro 2015. The specs are:

Intel Core i5 2.7GHz Broadwell, 13.3" IPS LED 2560x1600 Retina, RAM 8GB, Intel Iris Graphics 6100, SSD 256GB.

You'll have a hard time- any laptops just go to maximum load as soon as UE4 starts- the heaviest fan setting possible. You'll be able to use it at a very limited level, but you'll need a proper desktop setup to use it comfortably. I made the switch from a Mac Pro with very good specs (64 GB RAM, 3.5 GHz 6 core i7- still sluggish and slow performance) to a PC desktop with slightly worse specs but a GTX 980, and the difference was amazing- everything was so responsive, crashes were rare, and my experience using UE4 was drastically improved. UE4 is a powerhouse, and rightfully so- the excellent rendering power and state of the art features makes it reasonable to expect a big performance hit! I chose UE4 over other engines for this very reason- it isn't trying to scale down everything, but gives you as much power as you'll need!
