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"

How do I get Receive Draw Hud Event in Custom Pawn that is Possessed?

Event Receive Draw HUD doesn't fire when I posses a custom Pawn Bluepoint. Is there a box I need to check somewhere?

Hey omskillet,

What are you trying to fire with the Event Receive Draw HUD? Are you trying to pass in information from the Pawn to display with the HUD?

I'm trying to take the Blueprints_HUD example and apply it to a Pawn that isn't derived from Character. Its just derived from Pawn. When I'm using the default character in my level it works fine. When I posses my different Pawn Event Receive Draw HUD no longer triggers. No HUD is draw and no breakpoints are hit in my HUD blueprint.

It appears the Cinematic Mode is being set to true on Posses. Is this desired behavior?

This just so happens to be from USER ERROR. I copied some Blueprint from one of the demolets and it was turning off the HUD. Awesome.
