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"

[Closed] Need help trying to get owner and character in playerstate

I am trying to get the player character in blueprint in my playerstate. I can get it in c++ with out problems but the cast in blueprint always fails.

Here's the c++ thing I am trying to accomplish in blueprint in my playerstate class

 AController* OwnerController = Cast<AController>(GetOwner());
 if(OwnerController != NULL)
     AFirstPersonCharacter* OwnerCharacter = Cast<AFirstPersonCharacter>(OwnerController->GetCharacter());
     if (OwnerCharacter != NULL)

Here's the Blueprint function which always fails at the firstpersoncharacter cast alt text

I am fairly sure I am looking at this wrong but I've been at this for many hours over quite a few days and could just have tunnel vision.

thanks MK
