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"

Speed up start of a packaged game when launch the .exe file

When i double click the .exe file of my packaged project the game start with a delay of 3 minutes (no feedback, only a task of unreal in the list of the task manager but no icon in the task bar).

My project have a structure of a Persistent level with many sublevels. I try packaging the game without compression of .pak files, but the issue still remain. There is a way to speed-up the start or to move the loading of this maps after that the game started?

you should use level streaming https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/LevelStreaming/ this way you can start with a very small map and load each part of your world when ever you really need them.
