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 to use depth priority when debug drawing in c++?

For example DrawDebugDirectionalArrow() takes a DepthPriority as a parameter, but I don't know how to use it. When I give 1 or (uint8)('\001') it does not appear on the screen ; and when I give (uint8)('\002') or greater I can see it but not in front of other objects (same as with the default value (uint8)('\000')).

How can I have my debug drawings in front of anything else?

Have you tried SDPG_Foreground and SDPG_MAX from ESceneDepthPriorityGroup? (API) Inspecting DrawDebugHelpers.cpp makes me think they are the original enum values. That said, SDPG_Foreground should be equal to 1 and SDPG_MAX to 2, so it may give the same results...

This gives the same results for me in 4.19.

Has depth priority for debug drawing been nonfunctional for almost 3 years?
