(39) Rama's Extra Blueprint Nodes for You as a Plugin, No C++ Required!

you have deleted the victory rebind key ? with the new plugin i have error about that*
btw awesome plugin
you are a time saver

Hi Rama,

This plugin is awesome! Very handy thank you.

I am having an issue with the Capture Component 2d Save Image node. It works well when I play in editor, however when it is packaged into an exe, the game crashes whenever I trigger the save image node. (See image attached)

Is this a known issue?

ok, i figured out how do it.**

Rama Key Rebinding During Runtime System

I have a 4.8 updated version of my Key Rebinding project here, which now includes axis bindings!

[Full Project] Rama's UMG Rebindable Key System, Rebind keys at Runtime! - Community Content, Tools and Tutorials - Unreal Engine Forums!

My Victory BP Plugin has the new and updated nodes I use in the project



Capture Component 2D ~ Save Image ~ Crashing in Packaged Games

Yes this is a known issue, I did not develop that particular node, I am forwarding your report and hopefully it will get resolved!



**Load Texture 2D From File!

JPG, PNG, BMP, ICO, EXR, and ICNS are Supported File Formats !**

With this node you can load a Texture 2D from a file during runtime!

I output for you the width and height of the loaded image!

Now you can easily create Texture 2D’s from image files in Blueprints, during runtime!

Special Note!

Tim Sweeney liked this node!



PS: Make sure to include the file extension when you use this node!


**C++ Code For You**

Here is the core C++ function involved, entire source is in the download! I wrote my own Enum for the file formats.


UTexture2D* UVictoryBPFunctionLibrary::Victory_LoadTexture2D_FromFile(const FString& FullFilePath,EJoyImageFormats ImageFormat, bool& IsValid,int32& Width, int32& Height)
	IsValid = false;
	UTexture2D* LoadedT2D = NULL;
	IImageWrapperModule& ImageWrapperModule = FModuleManager::LoadModuleChecked<IImageWrapperModule>(FName("ImageWrapper"));
	IImageWrapperPtr ImageWrapper = ImageWrapperModule.CreateImageWrapper(GetJoyImageFormat(ImageFormat));
	//Load From File
	TArray<uint8> RawFileData;
	if (!FFileHelper::LoadFileToArray(RawFileData, * FullFilePath)) 
		return NULL;
	//Create T2D!
	if (ImageWrapper.IsValid() && ImageWrapper->SetCompressed(RawFileData.GetData(), RawFileData.Num()))
		const TArray<uint8>* UncompressedBGRA = NULL;
		if (ImageWrapper->GetRaw(ERGBFormat::BGRA, 8, UncompressedBGRA))
			LoadedT2D = UTexture2D::CreateTransient(ImageWrapper->GetWidth(), ImageWrapper->GetHeight(), PF_B8G8R8A8);
			if (!LoadedT2D) 
				return NULL;
			Width = ImageWrapper->GetWidth();
			Height = ImageWrapper->GetHeight();
			void* TextureData = LoadedT2D->PlatformData->Mips[0].BulkData.Lock(LOCK_READ_WRITE);
			FMemory::Memcpy(TextureData, UncompressedBGRA->GetData(), UncompressedBGRA->Num());

	// Success!
	IsValid = true;
	return LoadedT2D;

Hey Rama, what’s new about the node? You have already posted it here: (39) Rama's Extra Blueprint Nodes for You as a Plugin, No C++ Required! - Blueprint Visual Scripting - Unreal Engine Forums Your last post seems to be the exact same one, I’m just a bit confused :confused:

It’s not that there’s anything new, if there is I will tell you, I repost nodes periodically for newcomers and as reminders for people who’ve not tried certain nodes yet.

I also do this to recenter the thread on its focus of being a whole bunch of extra BP nodes that I am giving to the Community to play with!

I hope you are having fun today!



Sound Classes SFX/Music Separate Sliders

Thanks again for the “Victory Sound Volume Change” and “Victory Get Sound Volume” class blueprint, helped so much. Best part about it, I didn’t even have to create save object files for the setting. It automatically saves the volume for you.

I even made a short tutorial on how to use it.

I thought this was going to be more complicated but realized it was really easy to set up.


Old code :slight_smile:
Fix incoming soon’ish.
New code is directly from released versions of Ground Branch, which has been packaged into an exe multiple times.
Stay tuned :slight_smile:

**Improved Get Vertex Locations of Static Mesh

Now works in Packaged Games**


My C++ Code For You

See my PhysX wiki for the basic build.cs setup:

Here is the code I wrote to get all of the transformed vertex positions using the Body Instance and PhysX code!

I am doing many safety checks to ensure the Body Instance data is valid before utilizing it, and the result is that now you can get accurate vertex locations in packaged games!

//~~~ PhysX ~~~
#include "PhysXIncludes.h"
#include "PhysicsPublic.h"		//For the ptou conversions

//Get Transformed Vertex positions of any static mesh! -Rama
bool UVictoryBPFunctionLibrary::GetStaticMeshVertexLocations(UStaticMeshComponent* Comp, TArray<FVector>& VertexPositions)
	if(!Comp || !Comp->IsValidLowLevel()) 
		return false;
	//Component Transform
	FTransform RV_Transform = Comp->GetComponentTransform(); 
	//Body Setup valid?
	UBodySetup* BodySetup = Comp->GetBodySetup();
	if(!BodySetup || !BodySetup->IsValidLowLevel())
		return false;
	//Get the Px Mesh!
	PxTriangleMesh* TriMesh = BodySetup->TriMesh;
		return false;
	//Number of vertices
	PxU32 VertexCount 			= TriMesh->getNbVertices();
	//Vertex array
	const PxVec3* Vertices 	= TriMesh->getVertices();
	//For each vertex, transform the position to match the component Transform 
	for(PxU32 v = 0; v < VertexCount; v++)
	return true;

Can someone tell me how “Create Texture Render Target 2D” works correctly? I try to use it to create icons of meshes that have up to three different, user-chosen colors (so I can’t use simple textures and tint them). I do it in front of a pink (255,0,255) screen and set up the clear color to match the color of the screen but the output looks like this:


The greenish color is the button behind the image.

It’s supposed to look like this:


Minus the pink color.

Hello all,

I am trying to convert a group of spawned static meshes into an Instanced Static Mesh, and then Spawn multiple copies of that ISM, using blueprints. the “Victory ISM Convert to Victory ISM Actors” Node works great, but I can’t for the life of me figure out the 2nd part which is spawning multiple copy’s of that created ISMActor into the level. Can someone please give me some tips on this blueprint setup? Which nodes do I need to use to Spawn that Victory ISMActor properly?

An update for this is on the way - Rama contact me about it the other day :slight_smile:
New version swaps the red / blue channels and sets the alpha based on the clear colour RGB values.

New and Improved Save Texture Render Target 2D Image To Disk

Dear Community,

Community Member Kris has updated the “CaptureComponent2D_SaveImage” BP node in my Victory BP Library!

This latest version has been tested in packaged games and has been packaged and tested many times for Kris’s UE4 game Ground Branch.

**Capture Component 2D ~ Save Image To Disk**




This node let’s you save a snapshot from your Capture Component 2D as an image file on your hard disk!

If your scene capture component is not set to update every tick, make sure to use Kris’s method of moving the component to force an update.

Supply the filename of your choosing, making sure to supply an absolute path (“C:/YourDir/NewImage.png” for example).

You can check out my Victory BP File Path Nodes to assist in this process.

Thank you Kris for contributing such a valueable node to my Victory Plugin!

Hi Rama,

I have a slightly stupid question. Is there are some sort of a list of all these extra blueprint nodes? I thought you keep them in the first post but it doesn’t look to be up-to-date. Right now it becomes a bit difficult to locate a discussion or description on specific node if one forgot it’s name :smiley:

This doesn’t work with packaged builds in 4.8, it’s a great plugin but only for prototyping in the editor until Rama fixes the plugin for 4.8

I too, am very interested in the “Texture2D to LinearColor Array” node that would allow us to use “Get Pixel” with an existing Texture2D.

Also I wondered what platforms the “Load Texture 2D from File Pixels” and “Save Pixels” nodes work on currently? I am guessing just PC? If so, that would be another request - to allow it to work on all platforms (maybe check the “Create Save Game Object” node? I think that works on any platform).

Amazing work on all these things, you must be a machine :slight_smile:

What would your use case be for that? I’m working on displaying some pixel data from an external source (that isn’t an image from disk or an asset) using Rama’s work as an example, so I might be able to help.

I second that…I have been tempted to DL this plugin for a few months, but haven’t because there isn’t enough documentation of what these nodes do exactly. It might be great for those well-versed in C++ and know how to use them properly, but some of us aren’t that savvy just yet;)

Even so, I am sure there would be plenty of intermediate/semi-advanced BP users that could/would benefit from this and proper/current documentation in a central location would be fantastic.
