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"

Enemies don't spawn - Tutorial Twin Stick Shooter

Hi !

I have a problem with Zak Parrish tutorial "Twin Stick Shooter". He is a great teacher, no problem with that but, in this tutorial it seems that with the 4.9 version of UE, our enemies don't spawn. Even with several viewings, i can't find a solution and Youtubers are stuck too.

Tutorial : https://wiki.unrealengine.com/Videos/Player?series=PLZlv_N0_O1gb5sdygbSiEU7hb0eomNLdq&video=8kSWLUf3jFM

My "Event Begin Play" in my "TwinStickMode" : alt text

And this my "SpawnEnemy" in my EnemySpawner :

Thanks :-)

Looking at your blueprint, it looks like you have attached a subtraction node instead of a division node to the Time pin of the Set Timer node. This means that your Time value would always be negative, and thus never call the event SpawnEnemy. Hope that helps. Let me know if that isn't the issue.

Have a great day,

Sean Flint
