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"

Can you use the Forward Renderer in Non-VR Projects

I'm thinking about crawling back to Unreal after looking at other engines for a while, I'd like to know if the Forward Renderer can be used in non-VR projects. I'm looking into an engine that can let me go as far as possible to make a good looking game that can scale down to low end (integrated graphics) and get acceptable performance in games.

Product Version: UE 4.14

Yeah you can use Forward with non-VR, you can use the mobile level renderer on any platform too if youre looking to maximize performance.

Also a note, the engine says that Forward requires Shader Model 5 so depending on what you need that might not be as helpful.
