(*) Optional Code Plugin available, which allows display of loading progress percentages

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.

  • Exact Loading Progress Indication (Progress Bars, Percentages)
  • 15 "Content Example"-style tutorial levels included
  • Playable INTERACTIVE loading screens (think Assassin's Creed)
  • MINI GAMES during loading ("Pong" and "Invaders" examples included)
  • VIDEO Playback during loading
  • Loading screens during LEVEL TRANSITIONS and on STARTUP
  • 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 doc)

UE5 Notes & Troubleshooting: the included example content uses the legacy Input system. If you find yourself unable to move the demo character (e.g. in a clean UE5 template), you will need to configure inputs in Project Settings or copy the DefaultInput.ini from a UE4 Third person template.
