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"

[SOLVED] Player controller , On event begin play not running?!?

Okay so for the past hour or so I'am trying to figure out why my blueprint isn't event getting called. Firstly I was following a tutorial so I've either made a mistake or the teacher may have :P Youtube :D I didnt wanna ask for help but i feel as if i cant seem to find what's wrong.

Regardless i have tried using breakpoints on Begin play and parts of the script.... And i am watching the simulate to see if the nodes are being triggered which they are not... Im quite at a loss with what to do or how to fix this....

Hopefully someone can give a little insight to my issues?

Are you sure you se you PlayerController class as default PlayerController, also i things like quality settings should be in something more global like GameMode atleast.

Gennerly this should be saved in settings ini, you can do that easilly in C++ with UGameUserSettings:


but those are not exposed to blueprint, i think calling console commands is more effcient in blueprint only project

Okay so what i missed was that the Default player Controller was using the default one And NOT the new player controller i created. Is there a was to reference the default and the one i created? or would i merge the two together?

I will however take a look into the link you have posted as i'm well aware that C++ is so much better than blueprints from what I've seen the minority say.

Never the less thank you very much!

Following that tutorial and a few others is really helping me with blueprint and learning how to use it . Thanks again dude much appreciated :)

As far as I know, you can't "merge" two player controllers without actually taking the graphs from both and merging them together. If you want to use two different player controllers you would probably have to setup a custom spawn system, and even still each player would allow be able to have one type of player controller at a time (unless you modified/ created new playerstart actors of course.)
