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"

Deferred Tick Time Causing Hitches - 4.16

I've been digging through the profiler to try to optimize our VR project and have run into what I can only describe as a frustrating hitch related to Deferred Tick Time:

alt text

This is while sitting in the spawn of our game with no characters on screen besides our player character pawn. The hitch persists during gameplay and causes noticeable framerate lag in our game. For reference, our project is set to use Forward Shading with MSAA set to 4x, Screen Percentage is set to 140 though when I changed it during run time it didn't seem to have any noticeable impact on performance. I also disabled Particles, Translucency, Fog, and Skeletal Meshes when recording the stats file. We have also created a device profile that uses recommended settings for VR projects. The machine that is running the game has the following specs:

CPU: Intel Core i5-6600K @ 3.5 GHz GPU: GeForce GTX 1070 8GB RAM: 8GB OS: Windows 10

Is there any way to fix this or is it an engine bug?

Product Version: UE 4.16
