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"

Proper Inheritance

How do you properly inherince from other classes? How I would image it would be like this:

 #include "ClassName.h"
  AClassName CN;

and from there you can i.e. use CN.GetVariable();

This is what I have done, but everytime or even come close to do something like this, my gasme files crashes the engine nad the project cannot be opened again.

Hope you really can help me out here!

Hello, WishPotato

Please note that the best and most suitable way to inherit existing class in Unreal Engine 4 would be to add it through the Editor. To do this, please go to File - Add Code to Project, select the class you want to inherit, press Add and wait for the code to compile. Thus, you'll get the inheritance-related code generated automatically:

 #pragma once
 #include "GameFramework/Character.h"
 #include "MyCharacter.generated.h"
 class MY_API AMyCharacter : public ACharacter
 // rest of the code
