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 rewrite actor's defaults at runtime?

I am using Rama's Victory plugin, and am using the get pixel array node to get the RGB values from some saved images. Since I want to package my project for iOS, I cannot launch or package for iOS with the Victory plugin enabled.

I would like to simply read the pixel values once using the plugin, and then keep them saved in a separate uAsset in my project after I unload the plugin (thus allowing me to launch to iOS). Is this possible or is there any way for this idea to work?

Product Version: UE 4.17

I figured out a solution. I can drop an empty "database" actor into the level and have it grab the pixel data at runtime via the plugin. While the game is running, I can select that DB actor from the world outliner and select "Keep Simulation Changes", and close the app. Then select the object again from the world outliner and under "Edit Blueprint" select "Apply Instance Changes to Blueprint".

Once all of the pixel info is copied over, I can unload the plugin, delete any relevant nodes, and launch it to my iOS device without needing a remote server.
