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"

[Crash] Function Param Name conflict with Variable Name on Restart

Well, this was a pain in the *** to debug.


1: Setup up a UMG widget blueprint similar to (note the variable and function param of the same type with the same name): Fault

2: Call the function from BeginPlay on the level blueprint.

3: Reload the level (load the same level while it is playing).

4: Crash with cryptic error messages like: Message

One or more of the steps may be redundant, they're just what caused it in my case. Renaming the function param to something else (in this case NewMission) fixed the crash. This kind of name conflict is caught in C++, but I overlooked it here and no warning was provided. The error message was also quite useless. It's quite obvious there is a name conflict once you know it's there, as finding references to the variable also finds references to the param usages in-function.
