What is the best way to draw a UI onto the screen?

I’ve been trying to create a UI or simply draw an image onto the screen for ages. I’ve used Coherent UI, but it’s way too laggy and is always the last to load on the screen. Also I can’t get Slate to work at all.

Surely it can’t be this hard to just draw text or an image overlay onto the screen?

Sofar i just created my own Hud-Class and implemented DrawHUD. You have access to a Canvas object which allows you to draw Text or Images. YOu can simply create one from the editor (Add code)

There also UMG coming which uses slate to create UI blueprints and animate them. It will be experimental in 4.4, but you can play with it in 4.3 by starting editor with -umg option
