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"

Setting material parameter doesn't work in BeginPlay

I have a blueprint with TextActor component that i want to change dynamically during gameplay by setting its material parameters. So i create dynamic material instance in Construction Script, but when i try to change its parameter in Begin Play, it doesn't work: alt text

However, it works when i place this "Set Scalar Parameter Value" node in Construction Script. I want to smoothly change parameter values over time using Timeline, so I guess it must be in BeginPlay. How can I get it to work with Timeline?

I'm glad I'm not the only one to encounter this... I thought I was going insane!

Workaround I found was to put a delay node with a 0 second delay before setting the parameter. Very bizarre.
