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

I actually found the solution HERE- one of your GLORIOUS victory plugin nodes you had posted on someone else’s forum post. Thanks again for sheer excellence Rama!

Thanks for the answer on the plugin not working for 4.10. Then we successfuly made it to work.

We were using only few nodes where we accessed files via Victory Blueprints, but now we are using another approach and we don’t need the plugin anymore and it’s taking up 1.8GB.

But Unreal always crushes when we try to remove the Plugin.

There are three actions I can do:
1/ Remove these lines from DefaultEngine.ini
[/Script/Engine.Engine]
UnrealEdEngine=/Script/VictoryEdEngine.VictoryEdEngine

2/ Uncheck Plugin in Editor

3/ Delete VictoryPlugin from Plugins folder

I assume the correct order of these action is 1,2,3 according to wiki entry.

But there is one odd thing. The only case when editor doesn’t crash is when I have the Plugin checked in editor, and I don’t have any lines in DefaultEngine.ini file. Then if I try unchecking the plugin or deleting the VictoryPlugin folder the editor crashes.

You also written before “1. make sure plugin is at project level not engine level” but when I searched “C:\Program Files\Epic Games\4.10” for “Victory” I found nothing. I also searched file C:\Program Files\Epic Games\4.10\Engine\Config\BaseEngine.ini for “Victory” without results. Can you help me please?

I’ve had this kind of thing before, you need to check every blueprint for things like variables whose class no longer exists. Maybe you have a reference to a rama specific blueprint in there somewhere. I had the same problem when I tried to remove a now very unsupported epic plugin. There was one reference to this specific blueprint class buried in a blueprint that was crashing the engine every time.

You’re welcome Walldiv!

I am glad you got it working and are enjoying the plugin BP nodes!

:slight_smile:

Thanks for sharing this research/info Dannington!

I hope it helps you VRPixel!

It does sound like there must be some BP node specific to the plugin left somewhere in your blueprints.

Also make sure you are not using any of the plugin specific classes still, like VictoryISM, VictoryPC, and VictoryTMapComp.

Draw Circle now an engine node!

Dear Community,

I submitted a C++ pull request to Epic to make Draw Debug Circle into a blueprint node, and now it has been released in 4.10!

From the 4.10 release notes:
“New: Blueprints can now draw circles via the Debug Draw Circle node.”

Here are some pics from my Victory BP Library version!

Make sure to check out “Draw Debug Circle!”

Blueprint Node to Identify Graphics Card Brand of End User / Player

Dear Community,

I’ve just released a new node that lets you know the Graphics Card Brand of the end user!

Essentially, this node will return the graphics card brand for whichever computer is running the UE4 engine at the time that the node is run!

Currently works for AMD, NVIDIA, and Intel!

I also return the Vendor ID if the vendor is not one of the three above.

Hey guys,
I am being unable to successfully install the victory ed engine part.
I keep getting this error ---------->

I have got rama victoryplugin from here: VictoryPlugin
and the Victory Ed Engine from here: A new, community-hosted Unreal Engine Wiki - Announcements and Releases - Unreal Engine Forums

Both links are taken from ramas victory plugin wiki. I don’t know what I am doing wrong. The victory plugin is available in the plugins menu of ue4 if I only copy paste its folder. Copying VictoryEDEngine folder gives me the incomparability error. I havent even gotten to the point of editing my DefaultEngine.ini.

Any help would really be appreciated guys!

Thanks

Any one? :frowning:

You have to be using a compatible engine version, what engine version are you using?

Dear Community,

I’ve just released two new nodes to help you with all of your** collsion surface distance checks**!

These nodes let you easily tell how far a given point is from the actual PhysX surface of any UE4 game object with collision / primitive component!

I’ve even given you a node that let’s you directly check the distance between the physical surfaces of two objects!

See pics!

These nodes work with Characters and Skeletal Mesh actors that have physics assets!

**My C++ For You**

Here's the C++ code for my algorithm to get the distance between the colliding surfaces of any two objects!



```


float UVictoryBPFunctionLibrary::GetDistanceBetweenComponentSurfaces(UPrimitiveComponent* CollisionComponent1, UPrimitiveComponent* CollisionComponent2, FVector& PointOnSurface1, FVector& PointOnSurface2)
{
	if(!CollisionComponent1 || !CollisionComponent2) 
        {
            return -1;
        } 

        //Closest Point on 2 to 1
	CollisionComponent2->GetDistanceToCollision(CollisionComponent1->GetComponentLocation(), PointOnSurface2);
  
	//Closest Point on 1 to closest point on surface of 2
	return CollisionComponent1->GetDistanceToCollision(PointOnSurface2, PointOnSurface1);
}

Gamepad UMG Project up to 4.10 Now

Dear Community,

I’ve updated my complimentary plugin to 4.10, which lets you easily use a gamepad as if it was a mouse cursor in UMG!

Now you can navigate UMG using a gamepad with great ease!

See video for details!

Rama

Hey Rama!

Thanks for your reply! I am was using 4.10 and now am using 4.10.1 and still facing the same issue.
I thought your victoryEdEngine was compatible with 4.10 but please tell me if I am mistaken, or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks again.

does it have the feature of detecting the game pad ?

Hey Rama. Thank you so much for your efforts towards the community. I have a suggestion for you :). I bet many of us who make multiplayer games and won’t use the session needs to get Ping of the server. It would be really helpfull if there were a node where you can write the URL and then the node would return the ping to that URL. What do you think Rama?

Thanks

I am unable to reproduce this issue at the moment, VictoryEdEngine 4.10 is working great for me with test projects and downloads from the wiki of the plugin :slight_smile:

If anyone else has any ideas please let kabir know!

UE4 detects the gamepad :slight_smile:

This is a great idea!! Adding to my list! :slight_smile:

Happy Holidays Everyone!

Dear Community,

[FONT=Comic Sans MS]Happy holidays!

And even if its not a holiday where you are, I hope you have fun during these next few days too!

Rama

Hey Rama,

just having a issue with your plugin. If I want to use it on source code unreal it keeps saying “incompatible or missing files” on version 4.10.1. But if I use it on unreal side built it works and no error shows up. Any fixes already? :frowning:

Thanks.

Hey guys,

So I found this post on answer hub with some going through the same problem as me. Apparently he was able to fix it by having some one recompile it. Unfortunately my skills are limited if not down right absent when it comes to C++ and programming, so repeated attempts to compile through visual studio with zero knowledge is not really working out well. LOL.

I was wondering if some one could do me a favour and quickly recompile the VictoryEdEngine and upload it, I would really appreciate it. Or if some one can tell me how to compile it, that would also be helpful.

here is the link to answer hub post with the same issue as me.

https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/339957/ramas-vertext-plugin-not-working.html

Thanks to any one who can help in advance!

Even if I try to cook the project it keeps saying “RunUAT.bat ERROR: AutomationTool was unable to run successfully.” with result “BUILD FAILED”. If Victory Plugin is not active it cooks without any problems.
