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"

Playing in standalone doesnt play my video animation properly

So i have 2 video animations that work fine 1 is my intro 2 is my main menu but when i play in standalone it plays the 2nd animation(Menu) without the widget for like 3-4 seconds then plays the intro to menu etc, i want to remove that 3-4 seconds at the start. I have tried to take out the main menu animation and play in standalone but the animation is still there even when i removed it so this must be a bug... ? Also this works fine in selected view port & new editor window..

Hey Jakupiii,

I would need a way to reproduce this in a new blank project in order to determine if it is a bug or not. Would be able to provide me with steps or a minimal test case so I can observe this behavior on my end?

Thanks for the reply i have uploaded a quick video to show you what i mean, idk if this is a bug could be my outdated driver i just realised...


Basically when i play in PIE everything works normal but around 30 secs in the video im in standalone it plays that animation for awhile then starts i just want it to work same as PIE but could also be my bad comp

If you want to recreate this then this tutorial is what i used https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bzn0_uL9HuA&list=PLM6ZWbxOgIqsoG8GhJsYGr2FKuCaz6VOE∈dex=2

So just so you know, we do give users to add the option to play Startup movies etc. The custom logic of going about playing a movie on construct and calling the widget to be created when the level is loaded works, but unless you absolutely need this video to play with UMG being loaded, I would look into the startup movie route.

You are correct though, I would also make sure your drivers are up to date as well.
