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"

Dynamic material instance not working for MaterialBillboard

I spent a long time debugging using dynamic material instance with a MaterialBillboard, until I finally found out that there is a bug in UE4:


And according to the last comment the bug still exists in 4.5. How is this possible? It seems like such a simple thing to fix. Is this going to be fixed any time soon?

I was having issues with MaterialBillboards not properly working with my material parameters. It was as if they were not Dynamic Material Instances. What I found was SetMeterial does not work on MaterialBillboardComponent. This is what I had to do to replace the Material with a MID in my construction script. The ActivateIcon is my MaterialBillboardComponent. alt text
