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"

Alpha in Splash Screens

I'm trying to get a proper high quality splash screen for my project, but I keep running into issues with them.

My problem is with the alpha, or transparency of the images. When I use PNG format, the image is all glitched, like Unreal doesn't know what to do with the alpha data, and when I use BMP's, the alpha is rendered all white, all the time. Not transparent, like it's supposed to be.

Any ideas?

Hi! i have the same problem and i found two solutions.

The first is here:https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/205778/transparent-splash-screen.html

The second is open photoshop and follow these steps(i finded from some website):

1.Open your image with alpha channel.

2-Go to channels(right to layers).

3-Select all channels with CONTROL.

4-Create a new layer.

5-And save with the option alpha layer checked.

Here is the page,its in spanish but you can follow the image too:http://carlospozo.cl/crear-un-bmp-transparente/

And here is a little tutorial for make it in other way:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3LJCss690vs
