New to UE4, Tutorials Needed and specific question about dialogue boxes

Hey guys,
I’m a 3rd year student who is rather new to game engines, Studying Computer Games Design.

As you can imagine learning this software is kinda paramount to getting a good grade and being able to develop our game better, I currently have 2 people helping out who are very good with UE4, but we need to increase workflow.

I was wondering if anyone could post up some tutorials that can teach me everything i need in 10 hours or less, I can figure out blueprints as I go.

Also, as far as neededing these dialogue boxes, Basically we’re trying to create a dialogue function like in the legend of zelda series, just for telling story purposes, does anyone know a way of going about this? I have looked through google and literally all I’ve been able to find is interactive dialogue via (UMG?? - No idea) We’re not looking for interactive dialogue, we’re just looking for text which scrolls through on a press of a button. If anyone could help with either of these It would be much appreciated. Cheers

UPDATE: Manged to sort out AI to rotate to follow the player when around him, now just need to turn this into a triggerbox activation thingy. (Excuse noob speak)

  1. it will always take more than 10 hours to learn everything you need :wink: But I recommend you to start with the official youtube tutorials: After that you can find more on the wiki + in the forum: https://wiki.unrealengine/Main_Page

Also make sure to take a look at the documentation when you have any problems: https://docs.unrealengine/latest/INT/ or post them in the forum so that we can help you. :slight_smile:

  1. As you already mentioned, UMG is the way to go -> https://docs.unrealengine/latest/INT/Engine/UMG/

Ooo perfect, thanks for the UMG guide, all the ones I keep finding on google are full of terms I dont even understand aha. I dont know how to understand,

Its just the basics I need to learn in under 10 hours, Im expecting everything else to take me forever, thanks for the links though, I really appreciate it ^^
