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"

[Feature Request] Mobile Point Light Dynamic Shadows

I'd like to request dynamic shadows for point lights, and preferably the implementation of Spot Lights for mobile (with dynamic shadows support also).

It's a feature competitors provide, and it will position mobile developers to produce more visually stunning mobile games built on UE4, especially as hardware has and is continuing to develop.

It's late 2018 and I don't see this on their roadmap. This missing feature is a blocker for me for supporting mobile and low end desktop, as movable spotlights are a required feature of some game types and mechanics, and hackish material tricks don't do the job properly.

Unfortunately, my guess is that they hope this issue goes away over time as hardware gets better. The Nintendo Switch itself uses UE4's full, deferred renderer, so I don't think they have much incentive to continue adding to ES3.1 given that mobile devices and IGP's will eventually catch up to the Switch and beyond.
