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"

Cant play the game when I use Main Menu widget

I just create a main menu widget at new blank level blueprint. But when I play it, its just like I'm in the editor mode. i cant control the character, you can move the camera (mouse click + WASD), when i right click it, it shows option that pop up like when youre editing the level, but and i can click the buttons in my main menu widget, and button when the character dies. but it's simulating the game! In other words, I'm playing the game in editor mode?

I believe the problem is the main menu because when I remove the the menu widget at the empty level blueprint, it runs normally. But i dont know why the problem occurs when i connect the main menu widget to event begin play at the empty level for main menu.

This is the level BP for the level i made just for the main menu widget: alt text

And this is when i at the actual level to play: alt text

If you need another screenshots just ask me

Make sure your play mode is set to Selected Viewport and not Simulate.

Selected Viewport

Set Input Mode Game Only will let you only interact with the game. You can call Set Input Mode UI Only to get back to interacting with widgets.
