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"

[Closed] Changing Window Size

Hi there,

So I'm trying to change the window size of my game, since the default window that opens is too long lengthwise, and I'm not having much success with changing it in the ini files.

I tried the old UDK route, where you stick it in DefaultEngine.ini / DefaultEngineUDK.ini (in this case, in my project's config folder), using ResX and ResY under the [SystemSettings] heading. But for some reason, that just isn't working.

So how do you resize the window? Is that a TODO, or am I missing something here?

Those settings are still used as project defaults but they no longer override the saved value in the per-game user settings.

YourProject/Saved/Config/Windows/GameUserSettings.ini

 [/Script/Engine.GameUserSettings]
 ResolutionSizeX=1280
 ResolutionSizeY=720
 bUseVSync=False
 FullscreenMode=2

Hello Nick,

I had time to sit down and try your suggestion. I created a new config file called "GameUserSettings.ini" in the directory location you mentioned. However, the window size remains the same when I type Play as standalone game mode.

I should also note that the engine keeps deleting the GameUserSettings.ini once I activate a "Play In" mode. Not sure why this is the case...

That would be a bug if the engine keeps deleting GameUserSettings.ini. I'll have QA investigate.

Also, how would I go about making a play-in window resizeable? Right now, the window sits at a fixed width and height with no viable means to scale it in X or Y.

Since I can't do that (and with windows 7 not letting me move the window tray above the top of the screen), the log command line sits below the windows tray. Thus it becomes impossible to really see what I'm doing.

We don't currently support resizing of game windows by dragging the edges. The engine sets the size based on the resolution as defined in the INI.

Inability to resize the window in the game very annoying. Especially if you want to run multiple clients.

I was able to drag the edges and resize game window (Play in New Editor Window). Which version are you running?
