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"

Try "Cast to Character" instead. That works fine for me. My problem was the speed was a tad slow, so I doubled it haha.

I'm can only guess he had a BluePrint made for his Character Class. So that could be the reason for his "Cast to PlayerCharacter_C".

Howdy,

Thanks for pointing this out, we are currently looking into this more.

As a workaround, if you create a new project and use the Third Person Blueprint template (or other character templates), you should be able to follow along and use "Cast to Character" node instead of 'Cast to PlayerCharacter' and you'll be able to continue as the video suggests.

Thanks!

For casts to show up, you have to have "Context sensitive" checkbox ticked.
