Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Pickup Message Using UMG Problem

So i have made a pickup that gives 5 more bullets each time you take it but i wanted a message to be displayed on screen while in the box trigger. after a lot of tries i got it working by making a separate UMG Widget Blueprint.

The thing is that when the player leaves the box trigger he lags and you have to click in the screen again in order to get control of the character again. How can I fix this?

This is my BP:

Do you really need the Enable and Disable Input functions for pressing E?

Try doing it without them :X

If i don't use them, the player will be able to pick up the item even if he doesn't sees it. That way he will be able to pickup the item only if he is inside the box trigger that allows the item to be taken.

Also you do not answer the problem I address but I found the answer. It is explained in that link:


It seems that this "cursor unlock" thing is occurring from UMG and it is a known issue.
