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"

How to watch Blueprints in motion?

Now, I know that when you're playing in-game, you should see changes/event chains, or whatever you want to call it while playing and the blueprint runs. I don't see anything at all. Is there some setting for this I missed, or does this only happen under certain circumstances?

I think it's just a bug. I have one test project where I added some nodes to MyCharacter, and even though the debug prints get called and are visible on the screen, the lines leading to them never light up. I have no work around, just sympathy for you.

Howdy!

Be sure that you choose to specify which Blueprint you want to watch from the Blueprints Dropdown menu, see this thread:

Ah hah. yes, that worked for me, although this is crazy unintuitive. I never had to do this for any other BPs, just this character one.. Also mycharacter_c is only listed in the dropdown after hitting play and once I've clicked to move, I can't get focus back to the BP editor to select it.

Press Shift+F1 to regain mouse control then re-select your Blueprint. The Level Blueprint usually runs by default, for other Blueprints you want to watch, you'll have to select them to watch them.
