"character reference is not compatible with character reference" with other UMG issues
So I was following the tutorial video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VjKY6z6uP0M∈dex=3&list=PLZlv_N0_O1gZo6zXTHGGSH8gxaA7a_zCt But could not get past the binding process due to this little message.
I was simply trying to get the player character's health level variable from the character blueprint for use in the GameHUD.
Another similar issue is also happening to me, it seems that many nodes, like the "Cast to MyCharacter" node, is completely missing from 4.61.
The issue with this picture is that for whatever reason, the target of "Assign button was clicked" node will only accept object references, not structs. This has severely hampered my ability to progress with my project as a whole. And I don't have any experience with other inventory systems (A list that populates like in Skyrim's inventory interface would be ideal, but don't understand enough to replicate it)
Any input on either a fix or an alternative would be greatly appreciated, I can't continue without this working.

I feel like a fool. Make sure you are aware of your naming conventions and how they differ from the ones in a tutorial. I had confused nodes like "Cast to my character" as static nodes (that do not change, like eventbeginplay) But instead "My Character" is referring specifically to the "My Character" character blueprint. Where mine was instead named "PlayerCharacter". Once I figured this out, everything else worked perfectly fine. Replaced it with "Cast to PlayerCharacter" and then followed the rest of the steps in the video.
