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"

Getting socketed colliders to trigger

So Im trying to make a simple melee combat hit with a sphere collider that is attached to a skeleton joint so that when the animation plays and the elbow ( the player attack is an elbow throw) goes forwards the sphere gets pushed into the enemy collider and triggers damage, but for now i just have a print string to test and I'm failing to get the print string to print. In blueprints I have "OnComponentBeginOverlap(HitSphere)" ( the sphere collider is called HitSphere) I imagine im missing some a step of a specific type of blueprint node to use. If this isn't a good way of getting melee collision or theres something I could be missing It'd help immensely. Thanks guys.alt text
