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"

"Quit" on tvOS?

The "Quit Game" node doesn't seem to do anything on tvOS (AppleTV). Is that...expected? Do games not ever shut themselves down on tvOS?

Product Version: UE 4.13

Not really...

So, just like the other Apps on Apple TV, they will just keep on running, but suspended... Like iOS.

If you want to give a 'Quit Game' choice, just save the relevant data and return to the start screen for your game.

FYI - While developing, if you find your game unresponsive or stuck somewhere, just double tap the TV button on the Apple TV remote. There you can swipe the applications up and away like on iOS.

Hope that helps!

I will take this as de-facto confirmation that you cannot actually quit a tvOS application. Thank you.
