|Session Name:||Bringing UE3 to Apple's iPhone Platform|
|Company Name(s):||Epic Games|
|Track / Format:||iPhone Games Summit|
|Overview:||This talk will cover the methods Epic used to bring a large-scale game engine over to a mobile device in only a few months time. Important points include what we had to change in Unreal Engine 3 to target the iPhone, what we were able to leverage directly, and what features we cut to overcome limitations of the hardware. Low-level systems such as rendering, file I/O, input, and threading will be addressed in addition to how our Windows-focused tools and engine are used with the Mac-centric development of the iPhone.|
