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"

[Android] In-game auto-update system ?

Is there a functionality in the stock UE4 or a plugin that allows deploying incremental updates on Android? (for example, I'd upload updated files, in .zip or loose files, to Amazon S3 and my game/app would download it from there)

I was told, at Oculus forums, that if I package an update, I'd have to update whole entire .apk

I would imagine a lot of people won't like downloading 1Gb+ games over WiFi. It's not the size that concerns me, but the frequency of updates. It really kills rapid iteration and "early access" development :/

Product Version: UE 4.11

Thanks for the links. Although I believe that doesn't apply to Android.

Nevertheless, I can use that for PC games.
