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"

Are tickers multithreaded?

Assuming I have 2 tickers set up like so:

 FTicker::GetCoreTicker().AddTicker(FTickerDelegate::CreateRaw(this, &Class::Tick1), 0);
 FTicker::GetCoreTicker().AddTicker(FTickerDelegate::CreateRaw(this, &Class::Tick2), 0);

Would Tick1 and Tick2 run in separate threads, or would they be run sequentially?

I could not find any information on this in the docs, Google, or the forums. I hope someone has some info on this. Thanks.

I just tried doing everything on 1 ticker vs spreading the load out on 2 tickers, and the performance is better (not by much) on 1 ticker.

I'm guessing that tickers are not run on separate threads.

All tickers execute on the Game thread.

Alright, as I suspected. Thanks for confirming.
