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"

Meaning of Frame, Game, Draw when using Stat UnitGraph

While running a game, opening the console and entering "STAT UnitGraph" produces a nice graph of roughly where the game is spending it's time, broken down into Frame, Game and Draw components.

I'm trying to get up to a stable 60fps (currently hovering around ~51fps). In my case, frame is ~25ms, game is ~2ms, and draw is ~3ms.

Presumably Game is time spent on game logic and Draw is draw time. What is frame? What reasons typically cause frame to be much larger than the other two?

1 answer: sort voted first

There is information on that in the docs: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/Performance/index.html

"The actual frame time is limited by one of the three: Game (CPU game thread), Draw (CPU render thread) or GPU (GPU)."

So Frame is basically the largest of the other three and the final update time of your game.
