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"

Set Custom Depth during gameplay does not lead to outlines appearing

I have a working outline setup that makes custom depth objects create outlines around them. I want to toggle this however on a per object basis (gameplay highlighting of objects under crosshair), but when I do Set Custom Depth in BP, the outline does not appear/disappear.

The property is changed, as I can do Get and I see the correct True/False, but the view does not show so. I assume the post processing only initiates once and then does not check for this again or such, but is there any way this can be done/fixed?

I still have this bug on 4.4.1

I have a blueprint for setting custom depth of a skeletalMesh to true, it compiles and the detail panel says I am rendering the mesh with custom depth on, but the outline just won't show up.

The problem was fixed by adding another BP function that switches the material to something else(in my case a placeholder material instance). My guess is it still does not update things correctly, and everything that resets the rendering property for the mesh will fix the problem.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. This does appear to be a flaw in the system. We have entered a ttp and our rendering engineers will work to fix the issue. Martin Mittring is on this thread and should be able to update you as to when the problem will be resolved. Thanks, Jon

This is fixed in latest code and should make it into the next or latest the one after next Rocket release.
