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"

Scaler Parameter in Material Not Updating!!Please HELP

Hey Guys and Girls, I don't understand why my Material isn't updating i know the values are changing and I can print those out to Console but for some reason the Scaler Parameter within the Material isn't updating my material within game :/ - I was wondering if it is because or some check box or something or do i need to run type of material update script....

(I can change the value in the material itself and yes it does Update but doesn't update live in-game) It should work but it doesn't...

I have already looks at the epic tutorials and already referenced the Chair color colour randomise sectors. (But i'm not trying to change the color/colour but instead the time value and emmsive value- both don't seem to work

I'm trying to get a value from 0.5 to -0.5 to change values with the material blueprint (time) it changes but doesn't update the material? Any reason why you think this might be happening?

as i said the values change but for some reason the material doesn't update even though- the values being changed and updated ever tick ( which as you can see with my blueprint which i'm using for debugging which i have been printing out those values to the console)

I'm using to create my own custom UI Elements e.g health bar but i need to values to update (which they do) which in turn should effect the material (which doesn't seem to be updating)

In this example, object gets random color when you place it in scene.
