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"

Can you move the in-game cursor with C++?

I'm trying to write some code that moves the cursor around on the game screen. However, I only want to manipulate the game's cursor (where the engine thinks the mouse is), not the Windows mouse pointer. So, if the game is windowed and the user's cursor is outside the window, the game cursor stops at the edge of the game window - and I'd like to be able to move it around (say, with a gamepad or something) independent of the Windows cursor.

I'm implementing this as a plugin, so blueprints are a no-go. Any idea if this is possible and what some helpful engine functions might be? I've tried FViewportClient::MouseMove(x,y), but it doesn't seem to be doing anything.

Use SetMouse(x,y) instead.
