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"

Hello flim,

Yes, you can develop for iOS without buying a mac. UE4 has built in packaging features that allows you to launch and package for iOS specifically. You are not missing any features by using a Windows machine.

Note: Having an iOS device around around so that you can test to see if the packaging worked is a good practice.

I am linking you to our documentation that steps you through the setup for developing with IOS for both PC and MAC.

In the iOS Quick Start documentation it says that you must have a mac to compile the code... So it would seem that you would need to buy a mac no?

"The PC-only workflow described in this guide requires a pure Blueprint only project. If you wish to use any code in your project, you will also need a Mac to compile the code."

It says if you use C++ classes you have to buy Mac

Develop? Yes, if working only in blueprints.

But if you want to submit your game to the Apple store, you need a Mac. Apple require aplication loader (now its part of XCode) to submit your app for aproval. Its a Apple thing...
