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"

Hi mercuriusfm,

UE4 requires a GPU that supports open GL 4.1 on Macs. As you can see on the following chart, your system's GPU (NVIDIA GeForce GT 120) only supports open GL3.3:


If you are considering running upgrading to a newer Mac, I recommend reviewing the following link for the minimum system requirements:
