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"

Two Questions: Full screen mode and Lightmaps

Hello there.

Question one: I've been working in unreal and once I've package a game, I have to hit Alt+Enter to make it full screen. I have searched for this answer and have been in circles with no helpful solutions. How do I auto enter full screen mode right after clicking the game icon.

Question two: I was struggling to get high quality shadows but I've managed fix them now. I was wondering when increasing the lightmap resolution, is it the item that is being cast you need to increase the lightmap of, or the item that is being cast on too?

Hopefully this makes sense to someone..

Hi Ryan,

  1. The information contained in this post should work: https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/51623/how-to-fullscreen-packaged-build.html

  2. When increasing the lightmap resolution for poorly baked shadow quality you would increase the lightmap resolution on the actor receiving the shadows.

I hope this helps.
