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"

How to control order of processing for actors?

How do I specify the order in which actors are processed(ie. have their blueprint scripts executed, or components like scene capture updated)? What about stuff within an actor? (eg. I have an actor which contains a scene capture component, and also a blueprint script which makes it move about...how do I ensure that its blueprint script finishes execution before its scene capture component renders the scene to texture, in order to avoid a 1-frame lag while the render catches up to the motion?)

You can use AddTickPrerequisiteActor and AddTickPrerequisiteComponent to configure your component/actor tick order.

Hey, AddTickPrerequisiteActor did not work for me. I want a decal actor to tick after character actor so this decal gets his latest position. But with AddTickPrerequisiteActor(Character) the decal still ticks before character :(

You should add the Decal as a Component parented under the root of your Character it should follow it without any additional code.
