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"

Why are Input Actions not in the Context Sensative of HUD BP

There seem to be a problem with Unreal 4.14 In that "action mappins" in project settings, event's are not available to be found with the context sensitive option enable.

a HUD could quite well require a state change based on user input a good example of this would be the FF7 Remake menu (at 1:19 in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A3sBZ5Nr4hc) another Example would be Kingdom Hearts Games that use the same style of menu and this Engine.

So why are these options not displayed as part of the Context Sensitive options.

This isn't a bug. The HUD is owned by the Player Controller and meant to be used in conjunction with the Player Controller, so there is no need to accept input directly in the HUD. Think of the HUD as just the part of your game loop where you can write stuff to the screen, that is all it is. Put your action mapping nodes in your Player Controller, use them to change whatever values need to be changed, and then use the HUD to display those values.

A good pattern to follow is to make sure the HUD is stateless. Also, for menus you might find that UMG works a lot better than the HUD.
