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"

Low FPS in editor preview mode.

I have an odd issue. 95% of the time when I hit play-in-preview, I get 15-25 fps performance. In about 5% of the cases it will run at 120fps.

When packaged the game runs at full speed (75-120fps).

What could be causing this?

Hard to say, if you're running an Nvidia card, consider disabling the GeForce experience overlay. It's been proved to cause conflicts on some machines.

I didn't change anything for me. Editor FPS is still around 30 (40ms) but it runs smooth ingame.

It kept appearing and disappearing thoughout 4.17.x, 4.18.x.

Running 4.19.2 now - its completely gone. Always 120 (I capped it at 120). Overall - the best release so far for me. Fast, 2 crashes in months, and very very fast.

In a nearly empty map I also get 120. In my main project map it's 30fps. I don't know which objects in particular slow it down. I was hiding all sorts of objects, but nothing really had a big impact. Except when I had everything, it goes up to 90-100fps.

I'm now using the "far view plane" set to 30000, so I get 60fps, which is good for working.
