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"

How to render a Text Renderer before other meshes

how can i ignore the Z Depth Buffer and Render a Material (applied to a Text Renderer) before anything else? I'm trying to setup a virtual reality menu with the oculus rift, without having to move the player to another room. please don't argue about the design decision.

Thanks.alt text

Did you ever find a solution to this? I have exactly the same prolem as you, and i do not want to use UMG to draw my text.

In the Content Directory window, enable Engine Content, find the material used by the text renderer and copy that material to your own content directory.

Change the materials Blend Mode to be translucent.

In the category Translucency, set ignore depth test to true/checked.

Apply material to your text renderer and you will have your always visible text.
