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"

Optimizing for mobile, disable post processing completely

I thought when I chose low quality when creating my project Unreal Engine would disable ALL post processing. But the GPU Visualizer says post processing is still going on, specifically "Tonemapper#3 FramebufferFetch=0". Is this a necessary part of the engine or can I disable it? I know it does not look like a lot, but on really weak phones it could make all the difference, especially since the game is currently unplayable on my LG android because of the slow framerate. Any help appreciated!! alt text

Hi Zach,

As far as I'm aware the tonemapper cannot be fully disabled, but you can try using the console command ShowFlag.Tonemapper 0 to see if it is disabled for you in your packaged game. If not, then you'd likely have to make some code changes, but I'm not exactly sure what would need to be disabled and if it would have farther reaching repercussions for doing so.

I'm fairly certain the ShowFlag commands are editor only, but I could be mistaken.

I've tried this. It works in editor and in launcher, but not in packaged game.
