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"

Get world area of screen capture 2d render target

TLDR I am trying to make a minimap where the clicked location(s) of the widget will be mapped to world location (ignoring the Z value).

On my level I have added a screen capture 2d and have referenced it at the gamemode so I can access it anytime. alt text

My minimap widget looks like that: alt text

And the logic for x and y like this: alt text

I am trying to find out the values I need to plug into out A and out B (Value = screen coordinates of click, in A , B are calculated based on the location and dimensions of "ViewPanel").

I have made the screenCapture2d save to a target texture (1024 x 1024) and then I've made that into a material to use for the widget.

Extra render target info: alt text
