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"

1 answer: sort voted first

In 4.7 Epic applied a Bug Fix where splitscreen caused unwanted artifacts when using certain post-processing features like bloom. The fix was to disable those post processing features.

Now there is an enhancement request to allow people to turn them on suring splitscreen despite the unwanted artifacts: https://issues.unrealengine.com/issue/UE-57785

I encourage you to Vote it up.

In the meantime the only workarounds I've heard of are to alter the engine source code so you can deactivate the "no bloom during splitscreen" flag. or make your own splitscreen via render targets.

I used the approach in my project, of downloading the source code version of the engine off of Epic's GitHub, altering that one little 0 to be a 1 in the ShowFlags.cpp file, then compiling the entire engine and migrating my project to that engine version. It was a pain but it worked!

FYI: After some digging, it looks like this issue was fixed upstream as of Unreal 4.21.

Aww so I didnt have to compile my own version of the engine from source after all? Dang it.
