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"

Touchscreen Interface Help

Hello, I am working on a project that uses a touch screen for input. The basic premise is a 'scavenger hunt' where the player moves automatically through a level, like in a rail shooter, where no direction input is required. What is required is that the player will tap on objects in the level to collect them for the scavenger hunt.

i.e. The player is traveling through a forest. There is a visible on-screen list of objects to look for. The goal is to tap on the objects in the list. A successful tap on an object 'collects' them for points.

I have found guides for touch input controls that act like virtual joysticks and buttons. I am hoping there is a guide of some sort for using a touchscreen to 'tap' and cause an interaction to occur with meshes in a level.

Thanks for reading!

There are no built-in functions like Tap or Swipe in Unreal. You should implement them by yourself using generic input touch events. Or you could find already implemented solutions like https://www.unrealengine.com/marketplace/custom-touch-controls

Thank you for the link! I, hopefully, can create what I need with that or at the very least use it as a jumping off point.

Thanks! I am not 100% sure what I am looking for, but that node will probably steer me in the right direction.
