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"

How do you debug launch time

Currently I'm setsing a build of my game and have noticed that it takes quite a long time to start up. It launches, plays the intro videos then goes to a blank map that onBeginPlay calls open MainMenu. This is to try and get a loading icon from the transition map in place.

the problem is, that after the intro videos (18 seconds in total) It hangs on a black screen for an additional 42 seconds. And I can't attach unreal frontend until that point. So, how can I optimize this load time. What is happening at this point? a 60 second load time is a little too much.

Product Version: UE 4.8

I've been trying to find out why Initialization takes so long. But one way to see what is going on is you can run the game with the argument LoadTimeFile (Sandman.exe -LoadTimeFile) And once you have control of the game you can put in the console command (Stat StopFile) This will get you an UnrealStats profile of the initialization / launch of your game.
