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"

Anyone know how this is achieved? to mask out a certain area of the screen and have a aim at a character elsewhere?

UE4 don't have proper solution for this as i know, there few ways you might emulate this but either they not perfect ot require lower level C++ coding

1.Scene Capture 2D, but this was made for reflection not this kind of use https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Resources/ContentExamples/Reflections/1_7/

2.Slate and UMG have Viewport widget, but not sure if it works aspecially outside editor, maybe it's worth a try, Slate version should work the best

https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/API/Runtime/UMG/Components/UViewport/index.html https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/API/Runtime/Slate/Widgets/SViewport/index.html

3.There mesh widget, but it not not in UMG and it definitely can't animate and apply lighting. https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/API/Runtime/UMG/Slate/SMeshWidget/index.html

4.And finally most lower level solution and you can make Slate widget that draw custom vertexes, this will let you animate but still you wont get any lightning. This requires way more work then 3 above solutions, because you would need to create entire animation system and read mashes and set vertexes on your own.

I guess I'll try going through all of these and see which I can get away with. Will probably have to fake it in some way
