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 hide HUD (crosshair) after recent event?

Okay community, time to gather around and let me tell you the story on how I need help with my crosshair HUD. So I'm currently in the process of building an elaborate third person shooter in Unreal Engine 4.9. I've added a HUD w/ a crosshair in the center, and I wanted it to be hidden when the game starts, shown when aiming, and then hidden again when not aiming. So I started blueprint scripting away, and I accomplished two of those three things. It's hidden when the game starts, and shows when aiming, but doesn't hide again when finished aiming.

I'm providing a video and a few pictures for assistance, so you can see what I've done.

I think "PlayerIsADS" stays always false , you have to toggle it true/false too

No- PlayerIsADS is true when you aim down sights- hence ADS. It is false when you aren't, I only want it to show when you aim. I'll post blueprints for the condition ASAP.
