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"

8-Way Touch Directional Pad?

I'm curious, as it could save me a whole ton of hassle, and fix a lot touch screen control issues in my game. Is there anyway to implement a Directional Pad, preferably with 8 Way movement, instead of the Thumbstick for touch screen based games? I'd like to be able to move around by just pressing on a D-pad the screen, instead of having to drag your finger across the thumbstick. I feel the thumbstick is very fidgety and not as precise for what I need in my game. Plus it's really easy to move your finger slightly too far off the stick or into the left side of the screen, constantly interrupting movement. The game Pocket Morty's that recently came out has a great example of what I'd like, but it only has 4 directional movement. Regardless if anyone has any ideas as to how something like this could be implemented, I'd be greatly appreciative. Please and thank you.

There should be touch settings in Project Settings, there you can customize touch controls. If there no way to create 8 directional dpad, the you need to create your own in UMG i guess
