So I went quiet yet again for a bit. I've just been pretty busy. Mainly with a couple of different projects.
I spent some time updating Tappr to have a proper onboarding flow, which shows the player how to play the game. At the same time, adding many different features such as Achievements, a basic profile, and the ability to share their

I've recently released a tiny game called Tappr. The whole idea of the game is to tap the circle and accumulate as many points as possible and climb the leaderboard. You can set a custom username and go head-to-head against other players to beat their scores.The leaderboard resets daily but this may change over time. I am considering an all-time best board along with weekly boards too!

It’s that time again, I’m making a post updating you on the site, what I’m doing and where I’m going next. Boring, I know.
To start with, I’ve recently been checking my analytics and the site is doing pretty well. The most popular post was originally “Improving UE4 Shader Compile Times” but that's no

Unreal, like most game engines, has a failsafe for if the player falls out of the map. In Unreal this is called Fell Out Of World. This is how you control this.

So for an upcoming post, I attempted to upload a GIF to my site which, if you haven't noticed, runs on WordPress. The problem I encountered was that it wasn't playing. Strange, this is an Animated GIF. It should be playing.When you upload an image file to WordPress, WordPress will automatically generate a couple of different sizes for it, thumbnails, "medium" and "large", because calling them that is useful.

So recently I've reinstalled Ubuntu on my home server. This was due to me originally using Ubuntu Desktop then converting it to Server by uninstalling the Desktop Environment. Epic conversion, I know. Due to performance issues with it I needed to do a full reinstall and properly replace it with Ubuntu Server.
After installing I noticed closing the lid meant it would go to sleep and everything on the system would stop r

You may have seen lately that my website has been on the blink, literally, it’s been on and off and on and off again.
I recently switched to using my own server for my website and it’s caused some problems. These problems have caused the site to go offline periodically and I’m trying to narrow down the cause.
I also have two other websites running on the same host wi

Can't support Vulkan?Tired of typing -opengl4 every time you want to open UE4.25?Don't want to edit -opengl4 into the generated desktop files so you can launch it without the terminal?Want to be able to launch directly from the project?You're in luck!

You've just spent a few hours waiting for Unreal to compile, you go to launch it and you're faced with this message: "Vulkan device not available"
Guess who's back, back again. Rhyce's back, tell a friend.
So I've been away from my site for nearly a year now, I can't believe it's been so long, I really lost track of time this time. So I'm making this post to prove I'm not dead with an announcement that I will be slowly releasing some of my projects and sharing some guides on how I build.....stuff.
Some of the upcoming posts will be on how I automate tasks in my Discord bots, some stuff to do with FiveM and

Compiling Unreal from source is far easier than people may think. I will be showing you how to compile from source on both Windows and Ubuntu, although it should work on any Linux OS. The process is nearly identical on both systems.
We will be compiling Unreal Engine 4.22 which is, at the time of writing this, the latest version of Unreal and the first to include Ray Tracing support.
If you haven't already you will need to sign up for a GitHub account and link your account to
