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"

Static mesh component not triggering begin overlap events

I've used BSPs to make a custom cone shape (smashycone). I wish to use it as a hitbox type component that is attached to the TopDownCharacter. My intention is that when the smashycone begins overlap with another TopDownCharacter it triggers a begin overlap event. For some reason I can't get the smashycones to generate any overlap events at all.

The strangest part is that I have a separate cone in the level that has the exact same collision settings and does produce begin overlap events with the TopDownCharacters. Please help, thanks.

I didn't give the static mesh I created a collision mesh -_-

If you're reading this and you haven't already, open your custom static mesh and click on the collision dropdown. You should be able to figure it out from there. d(^-^)

You should create auto convex collision for this Static Mesh. So it will work.
