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"

Most likely you will be able to work with UE4, but for sure it will far from comfortable. I would strongly advise going for discrete video card.

I have the following experience:

I am developing one project for both the Windows and the iOS. The main development is done from the Windows machine but sometimes, the version from Windows doesn't work on the iOS so I have to do some changes directly on the OS X machine - which for me is MacBook Pro with i7 2,5 GHz and AMD Radeon R9 M370X.

The processor is probably about the same but the graphic card is stronger (correct me if I'm wrong). I can run the Unreal Editor without any troubles - the frame rate in the scene view is solid - in reasonably complex scenes and the overall performance is nice...

...BUT after like 10 minutes of work, the Mac heats up very much. The panel above the keyboard (where the exhaust is hidden) becomes almost untouchable and the fan becomes very very loud. For me, this is not really an issue but it depends on you, if you are willing to keep your device under such a high stress for a long time - which definitely reduces the life spawn of the device.

I cannot tell you whether the Mac is capable of VR development but since developing / running VR is generally more demanding then normal applications, I would guess it will be very difficult or even impossible with the MacBook Pro and the more with the MacBook Air.

I am strongly recommending getting a much powerful machine.
