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"

Main Menu doesn't appear when hitting play

Hi everybody, UE4 noobie over here. I have built an ultra simple main menu but I however cannot ever get it to appear when I hit play or launch. I have included my widget event graph and also the hud event graph. I get the feeling I did something really stupid to prevent this all from working. The blueprint seems to be complete with a mouse cursor and also start game with the level name detailed on it. But nothing appears.

Thanks for your help.alt text

Can be good practice to hook up the "Get Player Controller" to the Owning Player Input Node in the "Create Widget"-action.

Just as a side note :)

Do you have this HUD class setup as the default HUD class in GameMode? Or anywhere really?

I do have the correct menu set up in the world settings HUD Class. However in my game mode blueprint I get an error message everytime I try to change the HUD class.

Ok this is strange its working suddenly even though I didn't make any settings changes. Maybe I just needed to reboot unreal or something.
