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"

Can't call function from another blueprint

In the myCharacter blueprint, I have a function called "changeWeapon". If I call this function in the Event Graph by using "Event Begin Play", it works but not if I call it from another blueprint, using a reference to the myCharacter BP. The overlap itself does work, though. Please refer to the attached pictures for clarification.

Any help would be much appreciated :)

Did you set the "Character" variable?

Try using the "Get PlayerCharacter" and cast it to your specific one instead of using that variable.

...at least that's the obvious problem which could appear.

I make that same mistake over and over again... thank you :) "Cast to" was what I was looking for.
