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"

Can we create a 2D game in Unreal Engine with 2D images?

Hi Guys,

I am new to UE4 and I started creating my own Tappy chicken kind of game. But when I look into Tappy Chicken, I found out that it contains all .FBX files and no 2d images(.png). I Imported a png image and in the blueprint editor, the meshes section is not showing it.

So, In UE4, can we create end to end 2D game just by using 2D images? or Do we need to create only .FBX or any other Autodesk 3D tools to create and 2D game?

Thanks in advance.

Product Version: UE 4.14

Yes, you can. The easiest way to get startet would be to use the 2D-Sidescroller-Template integrated in UE4 I would say. And about the files - you can use png( I know, because I already used them too^^) Although png doesn't show up in the meshes section because it isn't a mesh - it's a papersprites

Maybe take a look at this tutorial-series: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AEkulrzz6Is&list=PL4vARnfO6MOjqrK5YMI1EwYcZSR7ycD9h
