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"

UE4 Gameplay Debugger guide outdated???

Is this guide outdated? I was inheriting the 2 classes according to this guide and can't for the life of me get it going.

Then I dug deeper into engine code, and realized that apparently GameplayDebuggingHUDComponent class is deprecated. alt text

Then I dug even deeper, and found out that instead of GameplayDebuggingHUDComponent, we now use GameplayDebuggerLocalController???

alt text

(Sidenote: You spelled "categories" wrong, it's not "catories"

If this is the case, can the guide for Gameplay Debugger be updated? This will waste less of my time and cause less confusion for other people as well.

Hello Mantracker, I ran into the same problem. You can check FGameplayDebuggerCategory_* for Category example and seems it's pretty straightforward. But i can't understand how to register my category in GameplayDebugger. Maybe someone can help and explain?

I had difficulties following that guide too; eventually I concluded that it was deprecated, as you've found. I couldn't find any decent information anywhere.

So I've written the following tutorial on the UE wiki: https://wiki.unrealengine.com/index.php?title=Gameplay_Debugger:_Quick,_simple,_re-usable

If it doesn't solve your problem directly (the guide is intended for use with a UActorComponent) then it should at least form a basis for you to base something of your own on. It is quite brief the minimum amount of code you need to implement a your own specialised FGameplayDebuggerCategory, but what with the serialisation approach it's not easy to understand. Regardless, I expect the guide should show you the (new) way to do things and get you on your way.
