im not sure if anyone has a solution for this i know glass can be kinda tricky but i want to make a stained glass texture where when light passes through it the "reflection?" is the same image as the stained glass. how do i accomplish this?

Hi Ave Sinistra,
The transmission of light for something like this is possible, the only caveat is that it only works with STATIC lighting. This means no Stationary or Movable lighting will do this.
If you want to do something like this it's good to use a static point light outside the window to create the stained glass effect to transmit light.
You read this How-To here that walks through the limitations and the setup for this: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/Rendering/Materials/HowTo/ColoredTransluscentShadows/index.html
On my forum post here you can download this project and see the results.
If you have any questions feel free to let me know. :)

UE4 does not support something like that as i know, closest thing to that is light function
But problem is it does support color changing, only light brightness, but you might use some trickery by combining lights. Other thing you could use such trickery is decals but it would be... trickier ;]
