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"

Crooked ribbon trail in split screen

I've managed to add a Ribbon trail to an actor and it works great in single screen, but in split screen the ribbon gets crooked: alt text

I've just added the emitter to my actor as a component and I'm not spawning any actual particles: alt text

Is there a way to fix this in split screen?

Product Version: UE 4.17

no clue how split screen works. with that said, does it look the same on both screens? does it look the same for both screens if both cameras are in the same place? from what i can see in the screenshot, it looks a bit like the sprite orientation is being calculated for the wrong screen.

Yes, you are right: if both cameras have the same orientation it seems that the trail is rendered correctly: alt text

Seems like you need to force each camera to compute the ribbon separately then. I feel like this should be a non-issue though and have no idea on how to go about this.

Thanks, I'll look into that, but not sure if that's possible; I haven't found anything related to that yet.

It seems like something that should just work. If you don't find anything with a cursory search I suggested submitting a bug report. At the very least you're more likely to get attention from a dev.

Thanks, I'll do that!
