Unreal Engine 4 Tutorial – 3D Widget Web Browser In-game
In this Unreal Engine 4 tutorial we’ll look at how to create a web browser you can use within the game world on a screen. This is done by using the experimental functions web browser and 3d widgets. The PC monitor static mesh I use in the video can be downloaded here
Unreal Engine 4 Tutorial | Simple Score / Point System
In this Unreal Engine 4 tutorial we’ll create a basic score system increasing the Player’s score when shooting appearing targets. The tutorial is a continuation of these two:
1) Use Array to Create a Shooting Range
2) Auto-Spawn Targets with Tags and Timer
You’ll find ’em both in the Level Blueprints section.
UE4 Tutorial | Main Menu + Options to Adjust Resolution
In this tutorial we’ll create a main menu (title menu) with start and quit game, plus an options menu where you can adjust the screen resolution. Sound effects when clicking the buttons and background menu-music will also be added.
The different sections of the tutorial:
1) Introduction + the menu-texture-package: 00:00
2) Setting up the visual part of the menu: 03:20
3) Setting up the Blueprint scripting: 23:03
4) Adding sound effects and background music: 36:00
UE4 Tutorial | Video / Movie as Menu Background
This is a follow-up tutorial of the main menu tutorial above, and we’ll be looking at how to set a video as the background for the menu. Download the movie file I’m using in the tutorial HERE
UE4 Tutorial | Set Scalability in Level Blueprint or Widget Menu

Unreal Engine 4 Tutorial | Easy Level Completed Screen
In this Unreal Engine 4 tutorial we’ll look at how to create a simple Level Completed-screen with the use of a UMG widget and a Blueprint Class. This will let the Player either replay the current level, or wait until the next level starts. At last, just for fun, we’ll add an animated UMG object that serves as a kind of countdown timer before the next level starts.
The two menu tutorials below are earlier versions, and thus not as “advanced” as the two above. However, they do go about creating the menus in somewhat different ways, which might be of interest to some of you.
