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"

Yes you can. I run a 750m 8gb on a 2.4 ghz i7. You may find that it will run better if you open nvidia control panel and add unreal engine to run off nvidia. If you do not do this it will run off the the built in Intel GPU. I also recommend you adjust your project settings to low graphic quality as you build because as your scene gets complex in verticies and material shaders the editor will lag. There are a lot of other things you can do as you build, it just won't look beautiful until you package the game.

You could try using an external GPU (eGPU).

Here is Unreal Engine 4 running on a Dell Latitude E6530 laptop with a gen 3 i7 quad core processor using a GTX 960 as an external GPU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NPgm_k8gPD0

Here is the external GPU setup: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8S4hrz5irzQ
