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"

Issue with main and death menu

So I have this major issue which I need to get resolved quite quickly and I for the life of me can not figure it out. Pretty much when I start up my game and the menu opens, if you were to click the background of the menu and not play, options, quit buttons, it pretty much locks the screen up. So I can not move the mouse outside of the window nor click the buttons when this happens only way to fix it is to hit the windows key or bring up the command console then you can proceed to click play or quit. It's the same on death. To navigate after death you need to hit the windows key or console command to be able to click on a button. I followed the menu tutorial that unreal provided and I did everything the same, yet I get this issue. Any help would be amazing. one image shows the button highlighted then another is the mouse hovering over the same button only after clicking the background. -Kind regards.

Check your project settings, look for "viewport properties" and check if the mouse capture is enabled and also check for your mouse capture behaviours.

I Just had a look and these are my current settings:

after going through and checking. It seems to work for the menu which is fantastic, at least after turning off the whole capture thing, but it doesn't work with my death menu still. As soon as my character dies and is presented with the death menu I still need to hit the windows key/console key to be able to select the buttons.

can you show me how are you calling/showing the death menu?

avatar image CXE Media Sep 12 '17 at 05:14 PM

so hear as the player dies it goes straight to the death menu.

Ok, you are opening a level with death menu, does this death menu uses the same game mode as the main menu?

avatar image CXE Media Sep 12 '17 at 05:19 PM

has it's own game mode with the same settings. Should I use the same game mode?

It's a good test, but also, looks like you are using the same player controller in both cases, right? if so, check if the selected player controller on death menu level are capturing it, or in a simple test: request to show mouse cursor before open the level and don't use any player controller on death menu level's game mode

avatar image CXE Media Sep 12 '17 at 05:40 PM

Using the same player controller, yeah. I did the request show mouse cursor before open level on the level blueprint and I put none as player controller for the game mode but still didn't work, also crashed on player death haha

avatar image Iotti Sep 12 '17 at 05:44 PM

oh no, don't put "none" on it, just remove the node! lol

Anyway, don't use any player controller, just as a test, and check how it will behave.

avatar image CXE Media Sep 12 '17 at 05:46 PM

oh hahaha I shall give it a try now

avatar image CXE Media Sep 12 '17 at 05:50 PM

Okay I'm met with this when I try without the node

You don't need the show mouse cursor anymore, you can remove that node. And remember, that is just a test to check if it will behave.

avatar image CXE Media Sep 12 '17 at 05:56 PM

Okay I removed the node, played through and died and on the death menu the mouse cursor did not appear and was unable to click anything

avatar image Iotti Sep 12 '17 at 06:02 PM

Ok, that was the point I'd like to test. But anyway, set a different player controller to your death level game mode and test it.

And don't forget to get back with the get player controller and show mouse cursor nodes

avatar image CXE Media Sep 12 '17 at 06:17 PM

Okay I made a new player controller and tested it all but still having the same issue. This is a real strange issue.
