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 to get Overlap Triggers for PaperSpriteActors

Hey there,

I'm currently working on a 2D Endless Runner game in Unreal using C++. I have it set up to where the character never moves and I constantly spawn platforms that move underneath him to give the impression that he is running.

The next step I am working on is obstacles and I am able to spawn them fine and have them move towards the character, but I can't figure out how to generate Overlap Events when the obstacle passes over the character.

Both the character and obstacle are PaperSpriteActors. And I am currently not using any physics.

Any ideas/suggestions would be much appreciated.

I'm working with paper 2D too and using the OnComponentBeginOverlap works very well.

Take a look at this page for more info.
