Resubmitted because I managed to delete my first one accidentally.
Back when I was young, I stupidly installed 32 bit Windows 7 on my PC. A few months down the line, I upgraded my RAM to 4GB. Never thought to install 64 bit. Anyway, I recently installed Windows 8 (64 bit) on a separate partition. I use UE4 on that, but it’s unbearably slow (it takes almost 8 minutes to start and load a project).
I’d like to know if there’s a way to build UE4 from source for 32 bit Windows. If I could use it on Windows 7, it would be so much easier to work with.
Thanks for replying - it’s a shame if it wouldn’t work. I don’t really have hours to wait for it to compile, just to see it doesn’t work in the end.
My CPU is a good ol’ Athlon 64 X2 4600+, and my GPU is a GT 520, slightly OC’ed. Everything on windows 7 runs fast, it’s just windows 8 that sucks. It’s not just ue4 either, it’s everything. Ah well, maybe I’ll just wait until I get a new PC.
