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"

Strange 2D Sprite Clipping

Hey all,

I just started out doing 2D stuff with ue4 so if I made an obvius mistake please don't be angry and just tell me ^^.

I am trying to create a simple 2D game, bought some assets from kenney.nl, imported them, applied the paper2d texture settings, created a sprite and placed them in a blueprint. One sprite is 15 unites infront of the other one. But on some camera angels the sprite that should be in behind gets rendered in the front, as seen in the gifs:



Did I miss something? Or it this a bug? If so is it know and fixed in the latest preview (4.11P4)?

Thanks all

EDIT: I should note that this bug not only applies to the viewport in the blueprint editor but also to the editor viewport and every platform I have deployed to (html5, android, windows)

Product Version: UE 4.10

Are your sprites using a translucent material?

Translucent materials need to have their translucent sort priority manually set.

Try making blueprints based on your environment sprites that include this code: alt text

This is assuming that X is forward and Z is up. Change which axis you are sorting your sprites on.
