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"

I have the version 4.15.0 and i'm trying to use a lot of sensor with my arduino, but that plug-in isn't for the version 4.15, is there an update anywhere ??

I have a huge game already code in the version 4.15, and i can't open it with the version 4.10 of Unreal Engin, so i can't use the plug-in....

Is there another way to use my arduino and communicate with Unreal Engine.

Hi alakam328, you can use this plugin for the version 4.10 : https://forums.unrealengine.com/showthread.php?68643-UE4Duino-Arduino-to-UE4-plugin-Release!

Then you have to copy the folder "UE4Duino" in your folder protect with the name "Plugin" :P

Have you looked at the native UE4 plugin called MIDI Control support (beta)?

It can be used to send midi signals to Unreal and might be you solution.

I would suggest using arduino as an i2c as serial communication. then events that happen to the actual arduino can be interfaced as a controller I/O etc. you can map your arduino outputs to keyboard inputs if you like. Im not sure if there is a way to use UE4 to do something with arduino though. Theres a good tutorial on making a number keypad. http://www.instructables.com/id/I2C-keypad/
