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"

I am thinking of doing it like a mirror, where we see a camerabased texure of the next level in the portal and the cameraangle is animated as the player moves in front of the portal.

Yes, This is possible, You'll want to stream in the next level via Level Streaming.

Take a read of these: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/LevelStreaming/index.html https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YIKa3riX_MI https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=mathew+wadstein+level

Hope this helps!

Thanks for your answer, i know about level streaming in general. What makes things complicated is, that the portal to level2 is in the middle of level1 and not at the edge of it. Standing in front of the flat portal, i want to see into the level2 and level1. How do archive to see the level2 in the portal but also level1 behind the portal?

I can't promise anything but I'll try create an example project for you - I'll let you know how I get on.

Edit: So you've stumped me. I tried it and only got so far; Without the Portal stuff from UE3, It's quite hard to get what you're setting out to achieve. I managed to fake a second character in level #2 with a scene capture on his head to "fake" it but up close you can see this isn't the ideal solution.

Hope this information helps in some way.

Would be great to have that for roomscale vr "Rick&Morty" Style Teleport. Thanks a lot for having a look at this!
