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"

[Bug] Can't cast to child Blueprint

We have a Character blueprint called UnitBP.

If I make a subclass blueprint from the UnitBP, say UnitBP_Child, and then take a Object, or a UnitBP reference and use cast it will not compile.

Oddly, the console says "Info [0791.98] Compile of UnitBP successful! [in 1,242 ms]" but the Compile gear icon in the editor stays with a yellow question mark.

The underlying problem is that returning a child class reference to a the parent class and using the child class has the same wierd compile issue.

Like this... (The Set of A is to force the Core reference to an Object to test the cast.)
