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"

Hello, rogueyoshi

Sorry to hear about your problem. Please make sure you have the following lines

 UTextRenderComponent* CountdownText;

in Actor's header and

 CountdownText = CreateDefaultSubobject<UTextRenderComponent>(TEXT("CountdownNumber"));
 RootComponent = CountdownText;

in Actor's constructor.

Also please note that after the best way to ensure that code changes have been applied correctly is to save the level, close the Editor and recompile the project.

Hope this helped!

Good luck!
