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"

Is there a way to disable "Use Less CPU when in Background" for packaged program

Is it possible to make the packaged program always run smoothly even when it's not the foreground app ? Essentially like unchecking the "Use Less CPU when in Background" option for editor settings but for the packaged product. Thanks in advance.

Product Version: UE 4.11

Hi crunchytech, did you managed to disable "Use Less CPU when in Background" in game mode? I need this too for a game module.

Greets, solarisx

how u guys determining cpu usage on packaged game? are u using windows task manger or any stat command ? i see no change of cpu usage on my packaged game. but in editor i have seen several cpu utilization related code

u may try "t.IdleWhenNotForeground=1" in the console. but it most probably broken in 4.14 or 4.15 i have did a fix by altering engine side code. but as i said i never was able to detect any less cpu usage in package build.
