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"

Texture format on Mobile Phones

Hi everyone,

I'm working on a project right in which I have to make an app for Huawei P9 mobiles. My question is, How do I know which is the texture format that works best or if there's a way to know the texture formats not only for this device but for others.

I know that there's a default that works on all (if not, most of them) Android devices which is ETC1 but there are other options. I'll appreciate the help on this one.

Product Version: UE 4.13

I'm not sure, but I know that in the material editor lets you have switches that you can use in order to switch between different textures and shaders based on the device you are running the game on

First off, thanks for the quick replay. You mean in the "Mobile" section on the Material editor?

I meant the QualitySwitch and Feature Level Switch

Oh, ok. So basically I have to experiment with those to figure out which is the best option that balance performance and quality on mobile devices, right?
