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"

i7-7700HQ for unreal C++?

Hi all! I have bought a new laptop (omen X, i7-7700HQ base clock 2.8GHZ turbo to 3.8GHZ, GTX 1070 8GB DDR5 dedicated, 16 GB DDR4 RAM, 1TB HDD + 256 NVME M.2 SSD, 17.3 inch FHD 120HZ with nvidea G-sync 1080p display). I wanted to know whether my CPU (i7-7700HQ) will give me good compile times in unreal C++. (I am a beginner and following Ben Tristem's Udemy course of unreal C++)

It won't be bad but since it is a laptop with 8 threads it has its limits. Compiling the entire engine and all the programs probably would take between 1h 30m and 2h. Compiling just a small project would probable just take a dozen minutes for the first time around when it generates the pre-compiled headers. Small changes to your project should take seconds.

What does compiling the entire engine actually mean?

If you download the engine through the Epic Games Launcher then when you compile you will only be compiling your project module and project plugins. If you want to make modifications to the engine then you need to download the source code from GitHub and compile everything yourself.
