  • 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"

I can tell you this, UE4 can "run" on very low hardware that most people don't even expect to run, i'm running it on Core2Quad Q9300 and GF9600GT... this is not a joke. So if you ask if you spec gonna "run" the UE4? Defenitly without slight issue. So it's only matter of how fast it will run and how comftible it will be for you and whatever something is "enough" here depends on your preference. You definitely able to develop something on UE4 with that spec.... definitly in better envrament then on my current PC (which i upgrade very soon ;p)

But considering you plan of devlop something on Android aspecially if it's ES2 you should be fine with that spec imo, the spec mention above run early mobile demos even in 50FPS (since my laucher broke i didnt test any more demos). UE4 eats a lot of ram it's main performance killer if you have small ram i got 4GB and it's not enough, it kills other application momentarily, not sure if 8GB will do the job enough.

Thanks Bro. Em Gonna Go With A 8Gb Or May be 12 Gb If Ram Is Gonna Be An issue.

I had 8gb for a long time. Works like a charm. I have Unreal, the Launcher Blender, Gimp/ Krita and Chrome with 3 tabs open now and I'm at 5gb. I upgraded only, because Substance Designer eats RAM for breakfast. I doubt you will hit that 8gb with a mobile project though. <3

@Ninjin i was wondering if substance is capable of hitting those 8gb ALONE. Cause i really would like to start using that. My specs : Intel Core i5-4460 3.20GHz 8.00GB RAM Geforce GTX 1060 6gb

Depends with what resolution you are working, the bigger your graph and the bigger your texture resolution the more it uses. Some of the example graphs you get from Substance Share can take up to 4gb when you switch to 2k resolution. So, if you go for that 4k you can hit it, but again, always depends on your graph. You can go way under that with smaller graphs, there is also a lot to optimize in Substance Designer when working with Noise Textures for example.

Btw, we got the same CPU, you actually paired that CPU with a Geforce GTX 1060 6gb? Which motherboard? I got Gigabyte H97-HD3, wonder if I could do that :3

i have an old asrock B85M-DGS. everything works fine for me. Unreal is very smooth even with big project and for example i play Darks Souls 3 and Metal Gear Solid V at 60 FPS

Thanks. I Probably Will Upgrade My Gpu To Gtx 1060. But Right Now I Don't Have Enough Budget. Do You Have Any Suggestion For Gpu ? Under 120$

avatar image Vertigo23 Jun 29 '17 at 06:55 AM

unless you find THE REAL DEAL, any GPU under 120$ will not be an upgrade for you, or if yes it will not be worth the cost anyway. I suggest you to wait for a bigger budget and go for 1060 but watch out!!! take the 6bg one! the cost is aroun 200/250$ right now but it's really worth it.

Thank You For Suggestion. I Really Appreciate It
