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"

Is there a workaround for using 2D sprites as UI Elements in UMG?

I currently have a large number of 2D game sprites that are meant to be used as UI elements (think "Heart Sprites" from traditional games like LoZ, or "Lives" in Donkey Kong or Traditional Arcade Flyer games). The problem is UMG images currently only support textures.

Research has basically shown me that currently UE4 UMG only supports textures/ materials. So my question is simply: What is currently the best workaround that peeps know of for getting UI sprites (all contained in the same spritesheet texture) into UMG?

Product Version: UE 4.10
