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"

Are timers different in 4.6 and 4.7?

I originaly made my game in 4.5 but since I switched to 4.6 and up (I am now using 4.7) one of my timer node stopped working. The function I am trying to call is named Cast Frostbolt and it should be called after 1.6 seconds according to the timer, however nothing seems to happen when I do. It used to work just fine though in 4.5. When I call the function directly it also works so the Cast Frostbolt function itself is not the problem. Here's a screenshot of my little timer.


Am I missing something?

Edit: I found what the issue was. It had to do with the name of the function having a space in it. I tried just changing the name of Cast Frostbolt to just Frostbolt and it worked.

Try CastFrostbolt without space instead of Cast Frostbolt and see if it works now.

Put something to Object -> Reference to self. You can also put


In DefaultEngine.ini in your game module to check in Output window or logs if everything is fine.

Putting a Reference to self for the timer did not work either. This is what I tried:

The problem was the spaces and I guess the general formatting. I tried changing the name of the function to simply "frostbolt" and it worked.
