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"

Device Profiles: Where to put them?

I have a project which I want to optimize for iPad Air 2. When turning on the MobileMSAA with a value of 4 from the console on the iPad everything runs smooth so I want it to be set permanently on the device. Here are my steps so far:

  • There's no default profile in the device profiles window for it, so I try establishing one.

  • I copy the one from iPad Air, rename it to "iPadAir2" and add the "r.MobileMSAA" command with a value of 4 to it. I Package it, nothing changes on the iPad.

  • I try modifying the DeviceProfiles.ini. I find two of them in my project folder: one in ProjectName\Intermediate\Config\CoalescedSourceConfigs the second one in ProjectName\Saved\Config\Windows. Nothing changes, for some reason the one in ProjectName\Intermediate\Config\CoalescedSourceConfigs sometimes gets randomly reset.

  • I try to create a new DeviceProfiles.ini with the setting in it in my \Config folder: no effect.

I am completely at a loss now. Can someone explain to me:

  • Why does the Device Profiles Window seem to have no effect at all?

  • Why are there 2 different DeviceProfiles.ini files in my project folder with different contents that also dont have any effect at all?

  • Where exactly is the right spot to put in the packaging settings for the iPad 2?

Any help is greatly appreciated! Cheers, DeinMentor

Ok, of course I immediately find the solution accidently after hours of not finding it and finally posting to the forums: The "save as default" button on the top right of the device profile editor was what I was missing. I'm still wondering why it's called that way. I thought it to be some kind of global engine switch and not the one single button responsible for saving the settings at all.
