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"

You would need to make hud projection on every frame to place text on screen, there function on that in AHUD which also is avable via


Problem is you would need to use AHUD (it's called HUD in blueprints) to use it, you could both AHUD and UMG sepretly or place UMG management code in HUD. Also if you use Tick it would be best performance wise to use C++ for that.

You might also try play with Text Component, problem on that it's not facing player all the time
