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"

Splash screen automately rotate on iOS.

Hi, I'm driving to wall with splash screen.

So far, the issue found on IPad pro 12.9 inch and IPhone 6s.

My game only supports landscape mode.

The issue is that when I launch my game, the splash image is correctly shown and after a second the splash rotates like portrait mode.

I've googled it all day but I couldn't find any clue.

I really need any help. Thanks.

I have the same problem on 4.15. Did you find a solution?

Yes, I do. However, I don't remember exactly and I guess there were typing errors in Engine code. I will re-comment when I find the script.

I just added horizontal splash screens to my iOS project which allows vertical also. Seems like they are ignored and I get a clipped vertical screen instead.

I'm still getting this issue in 4.15 on my ipad pro 12.9. Every time the splash screen loads up, it shows the correct landscape image for a split second and then switches to a squashed portrait image of my splash screen. Any help is greatly appreciated.

You need to edit the engine code (as of 4.16). The Unreal engine code mounts its own image (after the system splash) to cover further engine initialization. You need to prevent rotations during this period.

It's annoying and an engine bug. Hopefully fixed in later versions would be good to get confirmation if that's the case!

This is my current solution - but it does require editing engine code.


To make this a properly viable engine change it would need to revert to the properly allowed orientations post splash screen.

Definitely an engine bug.
