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"

Any plans to implement dynamic shadows on mobile?

In the Mobile Performance and the Lightning for Mobile documentations, it is said that dynamic shadow casting is not supported on mobile platforms currently. Are there any plans to change this? I know it is taxing, but some games seem to be able to pull it off:

Hi everyone,

This is something we are working towards implementing, however we do not yet have a timeline on when this will be available. Have a great day!

Hi Adam,

It seems that it's still not implemented, though it is for sure required to make a good 3D game and new mobile devices (iPhone 6, iPad Air 2, etc.) are powerful enough to handle it.

Is there any ETA when it will be released?

Thank you, Roman

Epic added support for a dynamic directional light on mobile in version 4.5. They're also planning to work on additional features in march.

This feature based on deferred shading technique (defered shading depending on MRT extention for OpenGL) The MRT extention announced in OpenGL ES 3.0 Hardware support for OpenGL ES 3.0 was implemented for iPhone5 platform. I think Epic's working on it
