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"

Progress Bar binding for Quicktime Event

Hi all! I'm trying my best to learn how to use the blueprint system with all my efforts and then i'm testing my fantasy and my limits to learn something new. I'm working on a quicktime event system, for now I implemented correctly the first (basic) qte mixing the sequencer use and the level blueprint, where pops up on the screen "press X" fyi and if you press X then it's completed...but now I'd like to do something else and I don't know how to do it properly. I'd like to implement another versione of the qte, the one where you have to press a fixated number of times the key to fillup a bar and only there the qte is completed. The problem I'm having is that I don't know how to create the binding for the progressbar contained in the widget. I'd like to fillup (or deplete) to give a visual feedback about the qte progression, but it seems that the problem is that I've put everything in the level bluepring and can't cast to it to get some variables...so how can I proceed to put up this logic?

Hi Lacrima,

This should help with getting your level blueprint . . . I rarely use the level blueprint, but i hope that answers the first part of your question. link text

And this should help with setting up a progress bar . . .link text

Since your reply I tried to study how blueprint communication works and the functionality of event dispatcher, starting from the links you provided and watching the live training from Unreal Engine channel named "Blueprint Communication"...and so ok, probably the event dispatcher is a pretty good way to do the thing i want but i still can't figure it out how to make it work :\ Maybe could be better move all the things i put up in level blueprint into i don't know, maybe game state? It's a bunch of level sequences with some event tracks...

Another good livestream to watch is Blueprint Game Framework, explains the basic purpose of the different classes. link text I don't have any experience with sequencer, so i can't really say where that functionality would go. But generally the Game Mode is for the"game rules", Game State is for things like the leaderboard, team scores etc. You could put it wherever it can function really, but if it was me . . . i'd make it into its own actor class, "sequence manager" or something . . . and just add an instance of it to the map. Although keep in mind thats without knowing the specifics of your project. Good luck with it, just let me know if this didn't helpalt text.

I'll mark it as correct because, even though it wasn't strictly correct, it was useful to me to find a path to work on and hopefully it will be useful too for someone else. Thank you for your help, I appreciated that :]
