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"

Game Eats Mobile Battery Life

As I test I took the standard 3rd person charcter project and exported it to mobile.

I was shocked to see the battery drain on my iphone 5 about 1% per minute or 10% for 10minutes of gameplay.

Are there any techniques to help with battery usage on mobile games?

Thanks

Hi Tenacity,

Something like that template is not optimized for Mobile out the gate.

For instance, the default skysphere is expensive to run on mobile. The player character is certainly not optimized for mobile with it's poly count.

The biggest thing is to test often and to profile your game and see how it's performing. You have to keep in mind if you're developing a game that is intended to be played over longer periods of time on mobile, or one that has short bursts of play time that the player can pick up and put back down.

Depending on this, you can design your game around that and take into consideration how to proceed with your development.

This is a good place to start: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Platforms/Mobile/

I hope this helps.
