Can’t save my map after I add a blueprint using JSON. I clear out the reference to the object whenever it’s used but I still get the following error:
Can't save B:/Workspaces/Unreal 4/FirstPlayground/Content/Maps/Example_Map.umap: Graph is linked to object(s) in external map.
Try to find the chain of references to that object (may take some time)?
I hope to see someone leverage this to do non-game stuff with UE4, even. My mind immediately goes to mapping or weather apps that serve REST data. Cmon - Someone make me an Unreal Engine weather clock app with tons of rad effects
Hey guys, I tried to add this to my 4.4 project and it wouldn’t launch, it just said it needed to be recompiled. So I did it, but then it said it was unable to recompile, then said something about it being incompatible with my version. Now I can’t turn off the plugin because I can’t launch the editor and I’m afraid I may have lost my work. Any thoughts?
P.S. - Runtime plugins are not fully supported for content-only projects by engine! So, if you’re using plugins in Content only project you won’t be able to make Shipping build. I hope it will be improved in next releases
As promised (somewhere or other), I’ve uploaded the project I created that won me the prize of “most entertaining” at the last hackathon I attended. I utilized the VaRest plugin to hit Best Buy’s API and do some dynamic processing on it. This was more of a proof of concept for me, but it may be useful for someone that wants to see exactly how to implement these blueprint nodes in their project.
How does authentication typically happen with a REST API using UE4 and your plugin?
Our game will release on Steam which has a WEB API to authenticate users.
The way it works is like this:
On the client the user requests a token to Steam
The client receives it and give it to our REST server
The REST server sends it to Steam and steam confirms this user owns the game.
From there it seems we have to handle everything ourselves.
In our game for instance once we know he owns our game we want to allow him to perform a series of operations on the REST API through POST. The problem I see are the following:
What should you do on the REST web server to remember who is authenticated and who isn’t? Is this the job of SSL or some other HTML authentication method?
How do you prevent hackers to forge a JSON request manually and POST it on the REST API?
