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"

Get actors in selection rectangle giving weird results

I'm trying to use the "Get Actors in Selection Rectangle" function to get the actors currently on screen with a first person camera. But it's behaving weird and giving me the actor when it's clearly not on screen. They can be completely behind me and still detect it. Rotating the camera makes it detect the actor at random actors. Anyone know what is going on with this?

It's probably caused by components expanding your pawn's/character's bounding box to beyond what you'd expect. See my answer to https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/85782/get-actors-in-selection-rectangle-doesnt-work.html for a possible solution in c++.
