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"

Why don't you use debugger? You have whole engine code:

Check if SpawnLocation/SpawnRotation is good? Check what SpawnActor do...

And if you want log if SpawnActor failed, you can use


Put this config file entry to DefaultEngine.ini in your game module.

SpawnActor does not guaranty actor spawn, for example if there no space to spawn it will fail, thats why it got bool return if it success. As Pierdek said try debugging, try breakpointing if spawn actully gets called and check location input

Oh its ok now, apparently it created a slot in the blueprint and it was set to spawn none by default and i changed it to spawn my object. But thats for the response anyway :)
