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"

Hi Ninjoe,

Is the socket on your character named "Sword"? If not, that is possibly the error you are seeing, you need to put the actual name of the socket in the "In Socket Name" input pin.

Yes, its the name of the socket.

try adding a delay just after the event begin play, it could be trying to attach before the player is spawned.

No, don't works too.

try the solutions here: https://forums.unrealengine.com/showthread.php?61125-Need-help-picking-up-and-attaching-object-to-socket

If this doesn't work, try following this page on setting up and using sockets:
