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"

Can a trigger box be used to open a coding file?

I'm a student and this is for my first coding class, where we're using a program called processing.

My intent is to create a museum in unreal that has the player interact with the paintings hanging on the walls, opening the processing file that has them paint out the image. I've written the code and created the scene but I don't know how to make unreal and processing interact that way, I've been told its possible but not how. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Yeah, instead of saying what you cannot do you just click -1.

I mean, I wasn't the one who downvoted the comment, I gave you an upvote. Not sure who voted negatively.

Sorry, do you figured out how to do it?

PS: Thanks for upvote.

Not yet and it's really been driving me nuts, I've learned that what I want is to turn it into an executable but I haven't been able to get that to run in game either. I'm currently downloading all the visual studio add ons that might be relevant in hopes that this was the issue.

What executable do you need?

avatar image Przemek2222 Aug 13 '18 at 07:46 AM

If you want simple solution you can use Rama victory plugin. It contains blueprint nodes for files.

I will certainly look into Rama victory plug in and see if that's what finally gets this executable to tick, also I greatly appreciate your input, I've had no help from my professor who expects this done in such a ridiculous time window so it's nice to actually have some help.

If you wanna do it only for windows... it's pretty easy.


C++ API is realy good. Take a look at this. I will make sample later or tomorrow.

The Rama victory plug in was exactly what I needed, seriously thank you for that, this project had me at my wits end, so glad to be able to finish it. You're a champ mate.
