Android Native Development + Microsoft Visual Studio
"Epic's use of Nsight Tegra has been crucial for the efficient development of Unreal Engine 4's Android features. We're delighted to see CodeWorks for Android extend support beyond Tegra so Unreal Engine developers can remain in their favorite authoring tools during all development scenarios. NVIDIA's tool advancements are refining Android to a level matching game console development."Niklas Smedberg, Senior Graphics Programmer at Epic Games
"Nsight Tegra Visual Studio Edition is our favorite tool for Android development. It enables our developers to stay in a single environment and focus on the speed, performance, and fun rather than toolchains, makefiles, and headaches. We've used it for years."Thomas Williamson, CEO, War Drum Studios LLC
"Porting a Playstation 4 game to Android with GDB and printf debugging was painful, but I nearly pooped myself with excitement there when I first saw NVIDIA Nsight Tegra natively build and debug in Visual Studio just like when the game was originally developed!"David Grayson, Sr Software Engineer, Zombie Studios
