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"

No Reverb from audio in My Character Blueprint?

Hi guys,

I have audio that I'm trying to get to reverb around my level, using the latest 4.8 Preview. If I place it in the world it works fine, but if its in the 'My Character' Blueprint it won't effect it at all?

I suspect that the Audio Volume doesn't know that my Character is in it. Is this a bug or do I need to do something else? I am completely stumped and I've done everything else can think of.

Thanks, NJ Apostol

Hey NJ,

Could you please explain your audio question further, or show screenshots of the blueprint that you're working with so I can dig deeper into the issue you're running in to? Also, have you looked over the reverb audio content example? If not, it's in the map called 'audio'.

Looking forward to hearing from you, thanks! :)

I've actually solved this one myself. It was very obscure and I found it almost by mistake.

Because I am working across multiple audio levels and the sound I was using was based in a Blueprint, it confused me.

I had to change my level streaming method from 'Blueprint to 'always loaded' Go figure, lol

Seems like a school boy thing to do once you know but thought I'd post back in case anyone else comes up against it.

Thanks NJ :)
