The money thing
The first thing that i wanted to know as soon as i came here was can i get a trial version, because i would like to try it first and then decide if i like it more or less than Unity (i started Unity quite recently). The FAQ clearly states that cancelling subscription results in no penalty, so i could effectively pay $19 once, cancel right away, and then continue learning. All i lose are future updates. So my “trial” version costs $19, correct?
But that also means that i can continue making and publishing games forever and ever, and all i ever paid to Unreal was $19 one time and 5% off my profits, as long as i’m comfortable not getting updates. Is that really true?
The computers specs thing
My computer runs on Pentium dual core 2.0 GHz and 2 GB RAM which is well below the recommended specs. Is this engine really that demanding just to start using it? Unity runs fine here, and so does Blender. I’m sure i can kill my computer if make a complicated enough game, but for starting and making simple (3D) games it works very comfortable.
