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"

Packaged game size too large

Hi ,

My packaged game size is larger than expected. The content size in project directory is around 40 MB while the packaged size for android is 165 MB and for iIOS IT IS 300 MB !!!!

Steps already taken to reduce the packaged size:-

1)Cretae compressed cooked package is checked in project directory 2) Cook only maps is checked 3) Exclude editor content is also checked

I have to bring the size below 100 MB to submit the game...

Any kind of help is appreciated Thanks

Product Version: UE 4.15

I have noticed some strange things :-

1) Though, I am using PakBlacklist-Development in my build folder and I even see the " Applying Pak Blacklist " message in the output log while packaging , but the folders I blaclisted still appear in the cooked folder for engine content.

2) Second is even more strange. I have some textures which when cooked get tremendously large. For this I am uploading some screenshorts of Tree Sizing the particular texture called "Shield1". One screenshot is from Content folder in project directory and other is from cooked folder.

First one is cooked folder. You can see how the size of packaged content has become huge as compared to the actual content.

alt text Also the resource size for the texture is same as the packaged size. But isn't the resource size the amount of memory it occupies on the VRAM??

Also the game size on an android device is 163MB which is greater than the combined size of game content and engine data in the cooked folder.

I packaged a blank blueprint project with optimal options checked( like Exclude editor content , compressed package , Blacklist etc). The .ipa size came out to be 139 MB and when I install the project on my device the app size is 229 MB.

Also for android, the apk size is 39 MB while on installing the game the app size is 152 MB.

Why a blank project size is too huge?????

Edit : There is definitely something strange here as my game size is also 152 MB with apk size 39 MB same as that of the blank project size.
