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"

'ReceiveActorBeginOverlap' marked 'override' but does not override any member functions

Hi everyone. (Hoping this isn't already asked, already looked but probably didn't look hard enough since I couldn't find a solution)

I am trying to detect collision in my first person shooter using UE 4.9. I try to compile my code but receive

"'ReceiveActorBeginOverlap' marked 'override' but does not override any member functions"

in my error log. My header file, where the error is pointing to, looks like this:

 #pragma once
  #include "GameFramework/Actor.h"
  #include "HealthPack.generated.h"

 class TESTFPS_API AHealthPack : public AActor
     AHealthPack(const FObjectInitializer& ObjectInitializer);    

     virtual void     BeginPlay()  override;
     virtual void     Tick( float DeltaSeconds ) override;
     virtual void     ReceiveActorBeginOverlap(class AActor* Other)    override;    

And in my .cpp implementation file l declare this method like this:

 void AHealthPack::ReceiveActorBeginOverlap(class AActor* Other)    
      if (Other != NULL)
         if (CanBePickedUp(Cast<ATestFPSCharacter>(Other)))

Just a side note that ATestFPSCharacter is my character class which is an autogenerated file from the First Person Shooter template that imports "GameFrameWork/Character.h"

Does anybody know what I'm doing wrong? I'm quite new to UE4 (but ok with C++ using a different game engine)

Any help or tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

You can't override method that aren't marked as virtual, ReceiveActorBeginOverlap isn't virtual.

Override NotifyActorBeginOverlap but remember to call Super in your function.
