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"

Is there any BP node which acts as debug trap?

Hi, I'm searching to some node which works as a debugger trap. So I can link it from every place which I think as illegal state or data script error and I would like to stop execution at this moment to track problem.

Product Version: UE 4.9

Have you tried using breakpoints? You can right click on any node > Breakpoints > Add Breakpoint. It will pause the game when the execution reaches that node.

Yes I tried. I also thought about creating some function/macro in which I just set breakpoint but before doing so I decided to ask. Maybe there is already some node which I didn't found. Something like Assert in programming languages.

There is no such node at the moment, but i recall a feature request for something like that so it may be implemented in the future.

There is Set Game Paused function. It takes a boolean argument. So it can be used as a debug trap. Also it has an advantage over breakpoints: when a game paused by Set Game Paused you can explore a scene in a viewport, select different actors and view their variables.
