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"

So if I cast to a Hud blueprint I made, where do I specify the object? Like how do I find that hud?

When you cast to your hud it will give you an output pin that is a reference to your hud. You can promote that pin to a variable to be saved and used for later. It will be located under variables section.

You define your HUD class on the GameMode or GameModeBase. You can get the HUD from the PlayerController.

Make a GetPlayerController and from that GetHUD. To get the specific type you created it has to be defined in Project Settings->Maps and Modes->DefaultModes expand "Selected GameMode" and there you have "HUD class".
