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"

How to check if Level Instances have finished loading?

Hello I'm learning how to procedurally generate a level using instanced level streaming.

My question is how to check if the level instance has finished loading?

I want to make a simple loading screen, so before the level loads the game checks if the level is loaded.

Below is a snippet of the generation script, tell me if more info on the blueprint is needed I'll post them as soon as possible. Blueprint for the Generation

Product Version: UE 4.12

Polling is a good solution, as lackthereof0 has suggested. Another solution is to use the OnLevelLoaded and/or OnLevelShown events, like this:

This is definitely the way to go! Thanks .. now I just have to figure out why this event is not firing for me. :) EDIT: (never mind, I subscribed to the event after I started to load the level)

Hi Zellith,

This is what I did. I made a Macro (which is like a function but can handle delays and multiple exec outputs) which periodically checks if the level is loaded. The functions you want is "Get Streaming Level" to get a level by name, then "Is Level Loaded" to check if it's loaded.

Wait Until Level Loaded macro

I hope that helps!

Or just check character is not in falling state, then character is on ground, level loaded.
