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"

I'm using the third person bp template which works fine but for some strange reason my Default pawn class keep changing..either when i restart the editor or when i package a standalone. I want my default pawn class to be blueprint for example BP_player but it defaults to defaultpawn every time...any ideas ? when i play in editor it works fine but thats the only time it works...

Hi skeeta92,

Does this occur on a blank project with no additional content? What version of the editor are you currently using?

I found that our underlying C++ class for the pawn was causing the problem. Something about it overriding the default pawn value.

I made a new GameMode blueprint not based on a custom C++ class and now it works fine.
