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"

Creating a live feed in game score board

Hello, I'm looking to create an in game score board. not a window that you can bring up as part of your UI, I have a large circular asset hovering in the center of my level and I want to essentially turn it into a jumbotron with a live feed of the current score of the match and if possible have it switch between the multiple spectator cameras I have set up throughout my level. This second part is not necessary but would be an awesome bonus. I'm not sure if there is a way to make this into a texture or material that can be applied to my BSP but any ideas or help would be much appreciated.

Product Version: UE 4.12

Hi thanks for the quick responses this is perfect for getting a camera feed, now I'm just wondering how would I get it a live feed of the score to go with this. I imagine there's a node that could get the score info that I could use to determine which texture will be displayed using a sub uv/flipbook/sprite sheet/ whatever you want to call it lol. not sure if there would be a better way to do this but any ideas and suggestions are welcome thanks all.

I believe you need to look into how to render to a texture.

Unreal Engine Marketplace has a great example project that you can look into for this.

You'll find this in one of the showcases under the name of 'BlueprintExamples' that features a way to look through cameras throughout your level, all through blueprints.
