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"

Components are no longer editable after Closing and Opening Blueprint

Issue: Multiple blueprint components started existing in a state that can only be described as TRUEFALSE. As in, they exist and don't exist at the same time.

Here is a screenshot of the issue in action, happened more than I'd have loved it to happen: Quasi-Components

Project Files: https://mega.co.nz/#!2Fs1gRBI!o55HYb0AaCJyy09572T0p7YylB0KDbsufcSF8uGjA9A
Project Files contain everything needed to look at the issue and should open without any missing references and stuff. The Blueprint affected is "GameJam/Blueprints/Tilemaps/SciFi/SciFi_1x1_T-Crossing" and nothing I did made them go back to their old editable self.

Still have not figured out how to fix this, even when recreating the blueprint from scratch I end up with this. I may be a bit salty, but I think this diagram applies here.

Edit: I broke it even more! I think I should definitely switch to C++ at this point, my Game Jam entry is ruined anyway.

So the added components are not editable, not the inherited ones. correct?

Ok, you have use of a lot of components, but I can not see them referenced.

Where is the box being called? I can not see anything in construction or Event graph?

Can you help me with this?

Hey Narghile,

the added components (now even the inherited components) vanished from the component list and can't be edited. You got that right.

None of them are called, those a purely visual blueprints. You can also see the madness that spawns when you change a parent blueprint.

I can see all the variables, which file are they being inherited from?

What are you trying to do?

Hi Narghile,

the variables are just fine. It's the components that disappear from the component list - they aren't inherited, that's the issue.

I'm trying to edit components which belong to the open blueprint.

Edit: It has one positive thing though, the damn thumbnail looks better than it did without this glitch.

There does not seem to be a solution to this as it is a file corruption. Closing as unsolveable/unreproduceable.
