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"

Spawn Actor from selection prevents possession of spawned pawn

alt text

The top part of the image show that when spawning a pawn, with nothing plugged into the class pin, the newly spawned pawn can be immediately possessed.

However when something is plugged into the class pin, the Return Value is no longer compatible with the In Pawn, so cannot be possessed, despite the fact that class being spawned is exactly the same.

Thanks for your time.

P.S I should also add that this is not exclusive to the Select node, but also occurred when attempting to 'Get' from an Array and will probably (but not tested) occur with anything plugged into the Class pin.

Hi Jon,

Thanks for the report! I was able to reproduce this in 4.8.0 and our main internal build, and it's definitely different than it was in 4.7.6 (in which this setup worked). I have entered a bug report for the issue (UE-17320), though I'm not certain if this was an intentional change. If this is intended behavior, I'll try to find out what the new workflow would be for this scenario. Otherwise, I'll post here when I see any update on the report. Thanks again!
