  • Slide or fade Widgets onto the screen instead of just having them appear.

  • Look into the different sound, style, and color properties that Widgets support.

  • Set variables in your GameMode such as difficulty level, character class, and so on from within menus.

Welcome to the new Unreal Engine 4 Documentation site!

We're working on lots of new features including a feedback system so you can tell us how we are doing. It's not quite ready for use in the wild yet, so head over to the Documentation Feedback forum to tell us about this page or call out any issues you are encountering in the meantime.

We'll be sure to let you know when the new system is up and running.
