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"

'Set Input Game Only' cancels out the setting of 'Set Input Game and UI'?

Dear reader,

I have an inventory system, where the player presses the 'I' key to open the inventory widget and set the input mode to Game and UI (shown in picture 1).

I also have a shop (just an actor) and when I enter the shop, pressing the 'N' key, it opens the conversation widget to talk to the shopkeeper. But when the exit button is pressed, to leave the shop, it removes the widget and goes back to the character's camera, also setting the input mode to Game Only (shown in picture 2).

Opening, using and closing the inventory works fine at the beginning of play. But if I have interacted with the shop, then try to open the inventory, the widget pops up but the input mode doesn't change to Game and UI, it just stays and Game Only - therefore the player cannot use the inventory.

It's like it ignores the nodes from 'Add to Viewport' onwards and I have no idea why.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated, thanks.

I have just checked to see if it is ignoring the nodes onward from the 'Add to Viewport' by placing a print string. But I found it doesn't ignore them, it still prints the string every time.
