Wiki Code Tutorials

Hee hee thanks!

Rama

Hello Rama.
Is your C++ based GUI/HUD system (as shown in your tutorials) platform independent?
I.e. will they work the same on PC, XBox, PS4, etc?

I need an in-game list/combo box and, like you, may have to implement it myself. I’m currently looking through Slate/Widget resources to see if they can do what I need without having to start from scratch.

Hey Ash22!

Could you not create/is there not already a Combo box widget in Epic’s new UMG?
I thought they had most of the basics covered xD
(Don’t quote me on this, can’t actually remember)

But it’s worth looking into if you haven’t already!

Edit: Just had a look, it appears it does use it! :smiley:

I have it highlighting in the above image (Second down from “Misc”)

Hope this helps!

Hee hee! Thanks for answer Loken!

Nice to hear from you Ash22!

Rama

PS: to answer your question yes, my solution is platform independent as it is entirely in UE4 code, which is designed to be platform agnostic.

Add Handcrafted Custom Math Curves From UE4 Editor to C++**

Here’s a tutorial on how to construct perfect hand crafted curves in the Editor and then bring them into C++!

You can thus create spring curves, dampen curves, bounce curves, any kind of curves you want, and then use them to drive your C++ code!

Create Custom Console Commands in C++ to be implemented in Blueprints!**

Empower your whole team to make their own console commands in Blueprints!

Hey Rama,

I was just researching about this. I didn’t know how to do this but maybe I can figure it out now. This is great!

Isaac

Shouldn’t we at least have empty implementations in C++ as a fallback?

Other than that, that’s dead simple, thanks for the guide!

Hee hee! Let me know how it goes Isaac!

Sure! if you want to!

In that case have a UPROPERTY(exec) c++ function that then calls the BP Implementable function!

Forward Declaration Tutorial Updated

I updated this tutorial to 4.4, now that DependsOn no longer exists :slight_smile:

Added some additional info about #include in .CPP files!

Game Instance

Inter-Level Persistent Data Storage**

Dear Community,

I have just published new tutorial on how to use the new Engine feature called the Game Instance class!

This is only in the engine as of 4.4, but it is very powerful!

You can use the Game Instance class to store data between level transitions!

So where previously you might have had to save stuff out to config file or use a save object, or write out to binary file, now you can carry data from one level to another using the Game Instance class!

In the example code on the wiki I show you how to count the total number of ticks that have elapsed since your game application window first opens and the first level is loaded!

You can now store any data you want between levels!

New Wiki, Network Replication

I’ve just posted a tutorial using code from my own code base showing how I do Network Replication for actions that have to be performed locally by each client as well as the server (listen server).

New Plugin For Community!

I’ve posted a plugin template that you should find quite easy to adapt to your needs!

It is a fully functional plugin sample, containing some nodes that I found useful for doing AI coding in Blueprints.

But the main purpose is to give you a plugin template to use however you like!

Enjoy!

Dear Community,

I am giving you a full sample project as a download (8mb) where I’ve created a fully functional UMG Key Rebinding System!

You can click on the name of any key and then simply enter a new one on the keyboard/gamepad (just pressing the button itself that you want to be the new binding!

And I do track ctrl,alt,shift, and command!

And the list is scrollable too!


**Rebind Actions During Runtime**

And best of all, because of my Victory BP Library nodes, the changes you make in the Key Rebinding Menu instantly update the ingame character input component!

So if you rebind Jump from spacebar to page up, it takes effect instantly!

Why Am I Giving This For Free?

Because its really important feature for any game and I just finished figuring out how to do it for Solus.

I figured you would enjoy it as well, since it was honestly not that easy to do, and I had to really think about how to do both the UMG and the actual C++ code to dynamically update action mappings during runtime

:heart:
