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 do I force particles to start during a start up video?

I am running into this issue where the particles don't turn on until 3-5 seconds has gone by, even though everything else has been loaded in the scene. I currently have set up these particles in my main menu, which is using UMG. Once the start up video finishes, it then goes to one of my cameras, which has a fade in effect. Then this camera cuts to the main camera and the UMG elements are then turned on. My question is, how do I make sure that these particles begin playing before this fade in, so that there is no awkward 3-5 second delay before they start emitting? Thank you in advance!

Use WarmUpTime in your Effect, I believe it is in either the required module or the emitter. Sorry I don't have the editor up in front of me and I can't recall which of those modules its on :)
