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"

UMG rendering issue with oculus rift (4.8+)


we are currently developing a VR demo using Unreal Engine and Oculus Rift DK2. To display text information (labels, status visualization, help,...) we use UMG widgets wich are duplicated on the screen. This worked fine until version 4.8.x. However, as we upgraded our project to 4.8 yesterday, we realized that using UMG widgets causes heavy rendering issues when displayed in the Oculus Rift or VR preview. An example screenshot of the "desired" look [1] and in VR preview [2] (just a sample project:

The question is whether this is a known issue and will (maybe) be addressed in a future version (I checked 4.9.1 - issue still persists or if there is a workaround for using UMG widgets in VR-projects.

Product Version: UE 4.8
