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"

Events won't fire in standalone preview.

Hey everyone. I've encountered a problem which I have no idea how it happens or how to solve it. When I play my game in the editor preview or in windowed preview, everything works as it should. But when I try to play in the standalone preview, the overlap event that I use on my sword actor to make damage on my enemies won't fire. I think that's the issue, but it could also be the event tick where I set a boolean, that I then check to be able to fire the event that the overlap triggers. Does anyone have a clue why this is happening? Is it a bug?

Blueprints for reference;

I put the print string node to debug if the health interface gets fired, but I can't see any debug text getting printed in the standalone preview. Both events are inside of the sword actors blueprint.
