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"

Making a HUD

I'm currently working on a project in which I have to make an RPG game with different objectives, a HUD etc. I'm quite new to Unreal 4 and I'm stuck on the HUD and was hoping for help.


This links to a gallery of what I have created and what I am attempting to create. Basically, I have already created the text and I am now trying to create a text box to go with the text. However, the text box will not appear no matter what I try! Any help is appreciated.

Did you tried using UMG (aka "Widget Blueprint")? It has textbox support

Right click on empty space inside "Asset Browser" then "User Interaface" then "Widget Blueprint". That is UMG. Easy to use and easy to develop UI. Have fun (:
