    I'm not familiar with the acronym. What does XR stand for?

      It's the combination of AR / VR and other virtual solutions that interact with real life: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extended_reality

        Just looking to clarify the G501 gaming mouse doesn't seem to exist, at least I can't find it on google, so I'm assuming it was meant to be a G502 gaming mouse?

                VictorLerp it might be a stupid question, but is applying for a special category decreases the chance for a team to be a finalist, or the finalists are selected first (without taking any special category nominations into consideration), and only then the special category winners from the remaining submissions?

                  Selecting a special category does not decrease the chances of becoming a finalist!

                    Yes you're correct, it's the 502. Thanks for letting us know!

                      VictorLerp Are marketplace assets allowed in the jam this time around?
                      I'm hoping to try out some of the great free tools that Epic has been giving out the last few months ​​​​​​​

                        Under the usual jam rules, you can use marketplace assets but will only gain merit toward your score based what you did/made inside the jam timeframe.

                            I do have two questions :

                            - On the pdf with the rules, I read the following : "Submissions should not feature any trademarks (including logos), except the Unreal Engine logo as described by our Branding Guidelines: https://www.unrealengine.com/en-US/branding". Does that mean that submissions have to feature the UE logo or does it just means that if they feature one, it has to be the UE one ?

                            It reads as the former but I think it probably means the latter (I haven't seen any logo (except the default icon of the generated .exe) on previous submissions but I may just have not noticed them).

                            - When building a submission for PC in a jam, what is the minimal hardware that should be able to run the prototype smoothly ? I guess there is no rule, but what is commonly accepted ? Would GeForce GTX 1650+ (or Radeon RX 570+, like midrange graphics card) be a fine threshold ?

                            Thanks a lot for your insights and am looking forward to participate in my first jam

                              N0rgannon until Victor sees your post & can add or acknowledge -

                              1st - you answered your own question here -> "if they feature one, it has to be the UE one"
                              - I can add that it has to be an 'Approved One' as in: https://www.unrealengine.com/en-US/branding
                              (links to approved Logos are on the right side of that page)

                              as for computer reqs, last I heard Epic had Titans a while back.
                              They had them even before they were released !
                              & I'm pretty sure they've stayed up to date with all the technology available.
                              God only knows what they're running now, lol

                              and having lower computer reqs means that 'others' can play your game & that's half the fun in a game jam sometimes too. so up to you!
