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"

Can't create 'On Component Begin Overlap' node?

I'm trying to create an On Component Begin Overlap (or End Overlap) inside the EventGraph of an Actor Blueprint for use along with a Box as a trigger volume for my Blueprint. However I cannot seem to actually get the node to show in the blueprint at all?

I can get it to show up in the context sensitive (and non-context sensitive) results, but when clicking to actually create this node the dialog closes but no node appears. This is the case when right-clicking the BP area background, dragging from another node or trying while I have my 'TriggerVolume' box selected in the "My Blueprints" panel.

Not a clue what could be causing this. Any ideas?

Edit: Turns out that On Component Begin Overlap doesn't work, but using Event Actor Begin/End Overlap works for now but isn't making use of only the trigger volume but the entire blueprint actor.

Can you show us what you can see in "Events" category of that "All possible actions" menu?

Have you also tried to verify install from the launcher?

What about new empty project, does this issue also exists?

I'm also running 4.1.0 and It's fine for me.

This is all of the events available in a new project (FPS Blueprint Template) with context sensitive suggestions off and nothing else in the blueprint:

You just need to highlight the Component in the MyBlueprint tab.

After that, the OncomponentBeginOverlap is right there.

I know this is an old post, but in case anyone else has this problem in the future, try right-clicking on the desired component in the Components Tab of your actor blueprint. Then go to Add Event and it should be on the list.

Have you tried restarting your editor and/or your computer?

Tried both with no luck. I'm running 4.1.0, not sure whether it might be bugged in this version. I also can't create the 'On Component Hit' node either.

Have you tried putting the BeginOverlap in your actual trigger volume and locking the volume onto the component?
