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"

Pause game on steam overlay in VR (Vive)


I'd like to pause my game whenever the user enters the Steam overlay. Steam is working so far, you can use the Vive controller menu button to get into the Steam overlay. This works more or less out of the box bacause I've included steamworks - I haven't written any code to do it.

Question: How do I pause my game depending on the overlay state? I can't fetch the menu button click (not mapped in blueprints). I don't know how to get the info that the overlay is active.

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Product Version: UE 4.12

So after a long time of investigating, compiling, and crashing. I have managed to achieve this. Requires programming. I wrote an extensive guide which should be easy to read.
