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"

Spotlight attached to character on mobile not working

Hi. I'm trying to make a flashlight for my fps game on mobile. First when I saw it didn't worked I thought that it's not supported on mobile but after reading this https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-us/Platforms/Mobile/Lighting I saw that are supported up to 4 mobile spot lights. I don't know why when I'm testing on my mobile or on es2 view mode it doesn't work. I've also added a point light to my character and that one is working fine. What could be the problem? Thank you! alt text

For me it works but it's very laggy.

works if you place the spotlight as an actor ,but does not seem to work if the spotlight is a component attached to another actor....

Update: It does work, but only if shadow casting is enabled . _ .
