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"

Hidden in game does not work for tile layers

I have a tilemap with about 6 layers, 4 layers have "Hidden in game" set to "true" but when i am actually in game the layers are still being shown. Is this a bug or are there some hidden configuration... Even in standalone or packaged view.

Product Version: UE 4.12

Is there a way to workaround that issue? I am using the hidden layers for marking positions in the editor so that i can place normal actors on the proper positions only.

I do not have any known workarounds for you at this time, but a hint in a place to start is to convert your tilemap within blueprints as a tilemap instance. This will expose more options for you to modify the tilemap itself. Even then, I do not think you will be able to Hide the Layer in Game as this functionality simply is not working at this time.
