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"

overlap not working as expected

Having trouble with overlap events. End overlap event sometimes fires every tick. Jumping can stop / start this behaviour. With this example blueprint the print string functions fire continuously. Not sure what I am missing with this one or is it a bug?

Interesting. I have the exact same setup as you and it only fires once upon begin/end of the overlap. Jumping into and out of the volume fires it correctly as well. What does your capsule volume look like in the level? Any way you could post a video of the issue as well?

I have been testing this a bit & made a new project based off the blueprint first person. Same bug happens stright out of the box.

I put up a wee video of it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k2Q1qmuQw3o&feature=youtu.be

Essentially I started a new project. Made my new class blueprint as simple as I could. Dropped blueprint in level. Play in editor. Bam. overlap seems to be borked.

It might be a hardware issue. I have a little bit of a strange setup with quadro cards. I know they can cause some issues with games as they are not designed to be gamed with. Im not sure. Nobody else seems to be having the same problem.

I might be missing something really obvious.

I am now having the same problem my triggers firing like hell and we are now in version 4.16.2. I have made pictures of my swinging door, it works, but the leave-trigger fires the hole time when I will open the door.

Hi Wes, was this patched? I'm having trouble where my overlap triggers won't stop firing in version 4.13
