 So you need a LOADING SCREEN between scenes in your project? That's exactly what this blueprint system does. The LOADING SCREEN SYSTEM (LSS) is a Framework intended to add dynamic Loading Screens to your Games - both, during Level Transitions as well as on Start up. It's incredibly easy to include in your Projects and the Visuals of your Loading Screens are entirely yours to design as you see fit.

 Designed with convenience in mind: Drop one Actor into your world and set everything up in its details. Call level transitions from anywhere with a single node. The system will handle the transition and smoothly fade into the interactive loading screen and then into your level.

 15 well commented tutorial levels included

  • Versatile & Easy to use
  • Playable INTERACTIVE loading screens (think Assassin's Creed)
  • MINI GAMES during loading ("Pong" and "Invaders" examples included)
  • Easy Video Playback during loading
  • Unlimited setup options (2D UI & 3D scenes)
  • Loading screens during level transitions and on start up
  • Use different loading screens in a single project
  • Fully customizable UMG overlays (Random Game Hints example included)
  • Support for "Press To Continue" option
  • Advanced features (event handling, latent actions, see documentation)
  • Standalone Fade Component included
