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"

Can I call HUD/UI functions in actor class?

I'm simply trying to display a texture over an object when you collide with it (in my case my goal is to create a dynamic damage counter with particles and stuff) if you take a look at the screenshots below, it tells me that on line 40 inside the .cpp file, that "DrawHUD is not a member of AActor". I have included all libraries needed, anyone know of workaround? alt text

As the compiler says, DrawHud is not a member of AActor. This is one from AHUD. So what you need to do is create a custom HUD class that inherits AHUD and override DrawHud()
