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"

HUD font color influenced by post processing?

Hi,

so I tried to draw a simple "use object" text on the screen. I used the HUD as described in the FPS tutorial on the wiki - so I set the HUD in my gamemode cpp file.

 // set hud
 HUDClass = AFPSHUD::StaticClass();

and that's it. I then draw the text in the HUD's drawHUD() function.

 Canvas->DrawText(font, TEXT("Press [e] to use"), centerX, centerY+.5f*centerY);

The text should be white but it isn't. I noticed, that it changes with postprocessing effects (as you can see in the screenshot): alt text

Any way to disable this "feature"?

Thanks for helping!

You've probably sorted this out by now but for anyone else wondering...

Don't think the HUD is affected by post processing, that screenshot's just a bit of a trick of the eye. The color thing is most likely because the color needs to be set on the Canvas before making the draw call, e.g.:

 Canvas->SetDrawColor(FColor::White); 
 Canvas->DrawText(aFont, TEXT("some text"), xPos, yPos);
