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"

It's the gamemode, it won't switch gamemode, even tried inputing a string option directing to the gamemode.

It won't change gamemode, and because of that the mouse input isn't registering. Can someone tell me how to fix this issue?

Hello,

It is possible that the issue you are seeing is because input is still registering in your Start Menu level. Have a look at some of these blueprint nodes, specifically Set Input Mode Game and UI, Set Input Mode Game Only, and Set Input Mode UI Only. Setting the Input Mode to Game Only once you open the level could potentially solve your issue. https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/BlueprintAPI/Input/index.html

If this isn't helpful, could you provide a screenshot of your blueprint, as well as a short description of what your desired behavior is? Meaning, when you open up the new level, what do you expect the input to do? Thank you.

The levels have a game mode override on them (Click Settings -> World Settings). Is the correct game mode set there.

Let me quote myself "It's the gamemode, it won't switch gamemode, even tried inputing a string option directing to the gamemode.

It won't change gamemode, and because of that the mouse input isn't registering. Can someone tell me how to fix this issue?"

With this I mean thath I have already tried manually changing the gamemode and saving the ovveride settings for the levels. They are correct when loading the level from the editor. but when playing the first level and loading the other through the start menu it won't swictch gamemode until I press the pause menu.

Which is strange,becasue after I press P for my pausescreen and Resume Game, it works again
