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"

'Beam' Particles are Unfinished...

alt text

The above image pretty much explains it. Beams Particles have the option in-editor to set their target or source location to an actual emitter, but it doesn't work. I decided to try and look at the code to see if I could figure out what I'm supposed to do to set it up, instead I'm met by this switch statement with a 'todo' list.

Any chance this can be finished up? I can alter this and submit to master branch but with the big focus on Niagara now I doubt this will ever be fixed.

File in question is ParticleBeamModules.cpp

Bump, wondering if we can have a FR for this.

Hey TheJamsh,
