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"

press a button on gamepad controller to "restart" the level/start in "player start" location

Hello, I have a single level environment (navigated with XBOX controller). During playing in fps mode I would like to press a button on the controller gamepad to "Reset" map (that would reset players's location to the "player start") or just "Restart a game/map/level" from beginning.

I'd very much appreciate any tutorial / keyword on that. probably simple question related to blueprints but can't find the right info.

Yours, Mark

This blog post explains how to restart a level using Blueprints and other methods as well.

http://www.unrealidiot.com/how-to-reload-current-level-in-unreal-engine-4

In your case, you need to replace the OnClicked Event (red node) with a Gamepad input event. Just right click on the blueprint and search for one of the Gamepad input events listed here:

https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/BlueprintAPI/Input/GamepadEvents/index.html

For example, Gamepad Face Button Top. Then when you press that button on your gamepad the level will restart.

Hope this helps.

Cheers, Marco.
