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"

Turns out something has changed since tutorial written.

The variable that you are setting in the MyCharacter blueprint is already of the right type so you dont need to cast it.

When you create the variable in the Widget (the max ammo variable) it is a local variable by default so you cant access it externally. So create that as a proper variable (rather than just dragging backwards in the graph) and then in the MyCharacter blueprint when you get access to the GameHUD as type GameHUD then you can jsut set it directly with no cast.

Hopefully i haven't broken the spirit of anything by making that variable non local.
