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"

Pause Menu in VR

I'm trying to make a game for the Oculus Rift and I'm having problems with getting UMG to behave properly.

I've created a Pause Menu that works fine when not running in VR. However in VR the on-screen menu is split between the left and the right eye. So I used a 3d widget and now I can pause the game and create a wall in front of the player on which my pause menu is projected, however the menu on the wall is not getting my input: the button that should be focused is not highlighted and it doesn't react to keyboard or mouse input

Is there a standard way of creating a pause menu for VR games?

In the 4.13 and above you can just use Widget Interaction Component, set interaction source to "Center Screen"

This is because you have to use a line trace when using a HMD device to interact with UMG. It would be great if we could get an event model for HMD also.

Is there an example of line trace/UMG interaction out in the wild? So far I haven't been able to transform my raycast hit information into anything UMG can use.
