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"

Progress Bar emitting light

Hello everyone :)

I managed to create a health bar widget using UMG and attach it to a Pawn. The problem that I have is that the progress bar is emitting light - affecting the background and causing any text on itself to be hardly visible. Is there any way I can stop it from emitting the light? Any help will be appreciated!

Thanks in advance! :) alt text

Hi LoN, it is actually a result of my post process settings. I attached the settings I used in my world, if you wish to know ;)

What are the Tint settings on the bar?

Try color settings (bar and text) that have a cumulative total Red+Green+Blue value of 1.0 or lower and see if you don't get the effect you are looking for.
