Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Get Data Table Row Blueprint decoupling when opening project

I'm working on a dialogue system using CSV imported into data tables. They work great, but every time I reload my project the Out Row decouples from whatever I assigned it too. And as you can imagine I use this a lot in a dialogue system and it's very time consuming reconnecting after every reload.

Annotations for Photo 1.This is the state I find my blueprints in on reload. They will also not reconnect until I do what I show in image 2. alt text

2.To get the nodes to reconnect I need to reselect my data table (the one that is already populated into the Get Data Table Row Node) alt text

3.After doing that I can connect the out row as normal. Then I repeat for all remaining uncoupled nodes. alt text

Feature Request: A way to declare a DataTable as a variable so I can dynamically change them in Blueprints. Currently there is no way to promote or declare a variable of DataTable type. If I'm to continue implementing my dialogue system I really need to be able to swap the Data Table that is being used.(each data table is a conversation) It would be extremely difficult to maintain a single CSV file that contains the entire dialogue of a game... alt text

This is still a ongoing issue. Get Data Table Row becoming decoupled on reopening of your project.

This is still a issue in 4.5.1

Hi Toom,

This issue was reported in its own report (JIRA UE-3323), and has since been fixed. The fix did not make it into 4.5, but will likely be in the next release.
