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"

Custom HUD stops Particles rendering in fullscreen (F11)

I created a new HUD blueprint, inside it is this code: alt text

The Widget it is trying to create is here: alt text

I've set some of those bars to hidden and have the widget play an animation on BeginPlay (With a 1 sec delay) this is so the NEW EVENT slides in smoothly.

The adverse affects it has on particles are strange, It causes particles to not render correctly in F11/Fullscreen mode with the HUD enabled and active.

Below is an image of my character respawning with one of the UE4 default particle emitters: alt text

However in fullscreen this happens: alt text

It was hard to capture the shot so ignore the fact my character is missing, because that's part of the code.

Here is a shot of the particle too: alt text

This only happens when the Event Begin Play exec is connected to the AddWidget/SpawnWidget, otherwise it runs fine.

What is causing this?

Can I get some feedback regarding this issue, as what i have also noticed is that the side of the screen creates a blur/smudging/light bleed issue just like this Top Down game, mentioned here: https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/177571/47-f11-fullscreen-editor-border-black-1.html

This happens on the top while mine is on the Left, so I assume this is an issue persisting in the engine that is also related to the fact my particles don't show.

This issue dissipated for a short while but has returned and brought the particle problem along with it.

I'm having a similar issue. My particles work perfectly in a window, but as soon as I go fullscreen, they break. Like, if I go fullscreen with particles active, they'll suddenly freeze. While fullscreen, particles will either not spawn, or spawn way out of place. Going back to the default HUD solves the problem completely.
