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"

[Closed] How do you create working UI's and/or HUD's?

What resources are available that cover how to create UI's and HUD's for/with EU4 from start to finish? -I'm specifically looking for video tutorials, but anything would be appreciated as long as it covers the creation of a start menu and pause menu. -Just to clarify, I know how to make an interactive menu with Flash or HTML. -I just don't know how to get menus to "communicate with UE4" (ie. Load map, pause game, exit game.) -if it can be done with Canvas and/or Slate without third party software, that would be ideal.

For examples you could go look at the "Content Examples" included with UE4, and open the maps that show you examples for how to set it up in Blueprints or you could look at what Shooter Game is doing with it in C++. If you go to docs.unrealengine.com and search it'll search, the forums, wiki, documentation, and answerhub to help you find the information you need.

There are a couple of videos on YouTube that break apart the HUD example but nothing that starts us from scratch on how to build one - I really hope someone creates on soon because you can't have a game without some basic menu and I'm not good at tearing apart the examples and figuring out how they are made yet

Thanks for the reply. Searching the link you've provided has pointed to some useful information (for anyone with the same problem that lands here first) but even there, it seems a lot of people are having the same problem. -I haven't tried ALL your suggestions yet, though. If one resolves the issue I'll post an update here. -Thanks again.
