Realtime Preview

The small joystick icon on an UnrealEd Viewport title bar toggles that viewport's realtime preview. In this mode the viewport is live-updated, which will slow down the editor, but allows you to view the level better:


Viewport Title Bar. The joystick icon is on the left.

If you have a fast enough machine, most of the time you will use this in the 3D window.

Note On some machines and if you are using Direct3d as a display this mode can cause conflict with other direct3D apps. The nasty side effect being that you won't be able to playtest the level using the playtest 'joystick' button located in the Toolbar.

MythOpus: I believe xEmitter need prodding with is because they are usually set to not repeat. (I do believe you can make them repeat) Therefore, UED won't replay the xEmitter.
