I’m new to Unreal Engine and I just started trying to learn how to use UMG UI Designer. So far the learning process has not been smooth. I started with UMG UI Designer Quick Start Guide and got stuck at the very first section 1. Required Project Setup (https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest…t/1/index.html). Step 11 of this page says “Drag off the Event Begin play then add a Create Widget node with Class set to your HUD Widget Blueprint.” But Event Begin play already exists in FirstPersonCharacter’s Event Graph connecting to whole bunch of nods. It doesn’t allow me to add a second Event Begin play, and I have no idea what to do. Then I tried going to HUD Widget Blueprint and see if I can add Event Begin play there. But Event Begin play is not available in HUD Widget Blueprint! I googled and found this: https://answers.unrealengine.com/que…ent-graph.html Apparently I should use Event Construct. I don’t know if this was changed with version updates (I’m on 4.18.0), but whenever you make new changes, please also update your documentation.
The screenshots in Step 6, 7, & 8 are also confusing. Here’s the Step 6 screenshot:
It’s not what I see in 4.18.0. I get either Single Variable
Step 6, 7, & 8 don’t explain what this “container” thing is. As a newbie with no programming knowledge, this is just very confusing.
I hope you can somehow solidify your learning resources to help newbies like me. Thank you in advance!
