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"

Mouse pointer issues in HTML5

Hey guys I'm having a problem in FPS projects packaged for HTML5 (version 4.8.1). I'm using the FPS blueprint template and when running it on browsers (using Firefox for testing), the mouse pointer from the browser is interfering with the game's mouse coordinates. In fact, it overrides mouse control when playing in windowed mode, so you only have a 180 degree turn angle or so.

alt text

If I go to fullscreen, the game gains full mouse control and you can turn 360 degrees just fine, but then if I want to show the mouse cursor to interact with a menu or a widget, it won't show.

To sum up: in windowed mode, I can see the mouse pointer to interact with widgets but I can't turn 360 degrees. In fullscreen mode, I can turn 360 but I don't see the mouse to interact with widgets.

Any solutions or workarounds?

Have you attempted to upgrade from 4.8.1 to 4.8.3 or 4.9.0 Preview 4? If so, did you have the same outcome? Did you change any of the settings within the project before packaging it for HTML5?

Looking forward to hearing back from you, thanks!
