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 I have input in loading screen widget while loading a level?

Hey,

I have the following scenario - I have a loading screen widget which needs to receive input while a map is being loaded via "Open Level" called from BP.

What I was able to find on the matter so far is that no OS messages seem to be processed while the map is being loaded (I'm guessing that this is caused by the fact that both of these operations occur on the game thread).

With this in mind, I was wondering if there's a way to forward input through to the loading screen widget while loading a map?

Thanks!

You should be able to achieve it with level streaming: OpenLevel could open an entirely empty level with a sub-level, that contains your actual level. On BeginPlay, open up the loading widget (with inputs and etc), and start the level streaming. Once it's done, you can remove the loading screen (or do whatever you want with it).

I believe, this way, your menu should work properly with inputs, as the level will be loaded async.
