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"

Overlap event returns "None" on Hit Bone Name

Hi, I have a problem with the overlap event return. When I break down the Sweep result and try to print the name of the Hit Bone I get "none". I am testing this with a Blueprint of my Character.

Have you looked at what it is actually overlapping with? You might be overlapping the capsule, so it wouldn't have a bone that got hit.

As for the "Other Actor" I get the CharacterBlueprint which I placed into the level to test this on, and the "Other Component" returns the Mesh name.

Do you have physics bodies attached to your skeletal mesh?

avatar image UDKAP Jul 15 '15 at 02:25 PM

Yes. Does that effect the overlap event?

It could if you didn't have them :/

Not quite sure if that helps but I had a similar issue with a projectile colliding with the skeletal mesh of my pawn. The way I fixed it was just setting the collision sphere as the root of the projectile actor and all worked lika a charm.,

I tried out your suggestion and sadly it didn't work. Probably because I am not making a projectile but a melee weapon, so I don't have a projectile movement component.

Did you ever find a solution to this issue? I am experiencing the same thing and cannot find an answer anywhere.

avatar image UDKAP Jun 30 '16 at 02:13 PM

I did resolve it by making a lot of volumes and manually sending the information I needed about the bone that was hit.
