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 Shkuk,

Movable spot lights are not supported on Mobile devices currently. That would explain why you're not seeing it in the Android rendering preview level.

Mobile Game Development would be a good place to start when reading up documentation on the limitations and how-to tutorials for some features. It may be worthwhile to check the last couple of major release notes releases as well to see some of the new rendering features for mobile that haven't made it into documentation yet. You can find those here: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Support/Builds/index.html

I hope this helps.
