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"

How to drag and drop with mouse

Hey I'm trying to make various interactions for a game similar to a nintendo ds or mobile game with touch minigames where you grab things, move them, activate them etc using Paper2d. I can not figure out what to use because I don't want to give them physics, I want to control them directly with the mouse like in a jigsaw puzzle. I am not asking how to use the UMG drag and drop functionality.

This isn't really an answer, but you can find what you need in the content examples provided by Epic. I've been working with UE4 for about 6 months now and I just found this, and damn, it is really useful and I'm wondering why no one told me before. I think the map you need is called Mouse Interaction, but it does exactly what you want.

In the Learn tab in the Epic Games Launcher, scroll down to Engine Features Samples. In there is one called Content Examples. Download that, create a new project, open it up, find the map, and bask is the sweet learn-y-ness that is the project.

Thanks a lot, I had underestimated the content examples and never looked at them before!
