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"

Loading Screen in UMG

I'm attempting to make a simple loading screen in UMG. My blueprint is below:

alt text

I've tested it by removing the 2nd "remove from viewport" for the loading screen wdiget and it shows up once the level is loaded. But for some reason the loading screen does not pop up before the level load (or at least doesn't visually appear to do so).

I was also wondering if it was possible to determine % completion on level load so that I could add a progress bar to the loading screen widget.

Thanks!

I think it is not possible to update you UMG widgets during loading of a new level since loading blocks the Main Thread.

There is a Loading Screen mechanism available in UE 4.4 that runs a separate rendering thread for things like this. However it can only display Slate Widgets.
