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/iOS OpenGL versions support


I am currently working on a mobile game, testing it with OnePlus One. It appears to me that the engine packs and deploys the game on my phone in the Open GL ES 2.0 framework version. Isn't there newer mobile rendering framework, like OpenGL ES 3.1 or so?

If I deploy on the iOS device, will I still have to use OpenGL ES 2.0 render, or can I use e.g. the Metal framework?

Product Version: UE 4.7

Hi Lordink -

You will need to select the Rendering Mode you want to focus your game on in the Engine and Project Settings. For mobile game development it is common to use the higher Shader framework and establish feature levels for lower frameworks so that the game will work on a range of devices.

Thank You

Where exactly can I do that? I've been going through engine and project settings and I could only find a switch for a viewport render, and only between OpenGL ES 2.0 and "modern" desktop-like render. My phone always renders the project in ES 2.0 version.
