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"

There is no Scaleform support by default in engine. If you want to use Scaleform, you need to buy license and integrate it on your own.

The only build in options are:

  1. Slate - if you are willing for now make your UI using C++.

  2. Canvas. It can be done trough either blueprint or C++.

From those two I would really recommend using Slate. It's going to be daunting at first, but you will quickly appreciate, that most of common UI problems, has been already solved for you, and all you need is to override some virtual functions, and think a bit about structure of your data for UI. Where in Canvas, all you can really do is.. Draw UI. If that is all you need then canvas is your best bet.

But if you need some more advanced functionality, like window dragging, drag&drop, animations, Slate will be better.

There are also other third party UI solutions like CoherentUI and Radiant SDK.
