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"

Unreal Engine for Low End Smartphones and PC

TLDR: Title, is it possible?

Before, I am sorry if what I'm about to ask has already been answered. (I tried searching the forum and the answerhub, but the filter range is just too broad, really) I'm a newbie software developer, and I looked at comparisons and EULAs and TOS etc on the available engines. Unreal Engine kind of attracted me in the end. Un*ty is stingy like yay and Fl*sh is more or less abandoned, while others are mostly unheard of.

I read the basics and I know Unreal Engine projects can be made for smartphones, but is it possible to make a game for low-end smartphones and PC? My friend kept telling me that games made with Unreal Engine usually left his laptop really hot despite only idling on the main menu. I was wondering if I should or shouldn't try using Unreal Engine to build a game.

When I said low-end, I mean really low-end, like a phone with 512mb RAM. Not 3d is fine, but can a 2d game run on that kind of device if I use Unreal Engine? There are settings for performances and also optimizations; I know, but if they're all maxed, can it be played at all?

Thanks before and sorry for the longpost!
