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"

MediaPlayer texture only plays on flat plane

I have a model of a TV and on the TV screen, I specify a media texture to play. When I start the game the TV screen just stays black, (I tried playing it using the blueprint function call but that did not change anything).

If I make a simple plane and put the media texture on it, it works fine. Why does my media texture only work on a flat default plane and not on any other surface for me?

I got it, it has nothing to do with the flat plane, it has everything to do with this:
