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"

UMG releases player touch input

I am attempting to implement UMG into a game I am building for iOS, which has a simple multi-touch setup - you hold the right side of the screen to do one thing and tap the left side of the screen to do another.

However, I am having a problem with UMG causing released InputTouch events to fire. This is probably to do with my lack of understanding in how input events are consumed across different blueprints, but basically when holding the right side of the screen if you then tap a button in UMG (calling an OnClicked event) InputTouch calls 'released', signifying it thinks I have taken my finger off the right hand side of the screen when I actually haven't. I have a print screen directly after InputTouch pressed and released, and only released fires as soon as I touch the UMG button.

Any help is much appreciated, I can post screenshots of my setup if it helps.

I have the same issue. While having the first finger touching the device, when a second finger touches a UMG button, the first finger triggers a released event. I would also like some help with this.
