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"

Problem with casting from AI character to Pawn

Hi, I have simple Pawn that folows predetermined path and does nothing else. I call it Moving Target. Then, I have AI contolled pawn (called NPC_character_AI_v2) that i want to be shooting at Moving Target.

Problem i have is with casting. When i cast Moving Target into NPC_character_AI_v2, i would always get fail.

I tried NOT to connect Object pin on Moving Target to OnSeePawn node but then i have no idea what to pin there. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, H (Apologies if formatting is wild, i have no idea how to break the line in here) alt text

i'd replace the firing event "pawn sensing" with something else. Maybe add a box trigger component to it and do an "event overlap" so that you can check the cast.

Then, if it's casting right, you know your problem is the pawn sensing. This isn't an answer but it should help you track down what's wrong.
