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 Character within UAnimNotify

I cam across the this thread

I subclassed UAnimNotify and overrode Notify.

However, now I don't understand how to get things from within Notify that I need. For example the current Character.

In the Animation BP I can get the pawn easily from the AnimInstance alt text

However, I don't see a way to get the AnimInstance within UAnimNotify.

 class FPSGAME_API UFPSTriggerAbilityAnimNotify : public UAnimNotify
     virtual void Notify(USkeletalMeshComponent* MeshComp, UAnimSequenceBase* Animation) override;

 void UFPSTriggerAbilityAnimNotify::Notify(class USkeletalMeshComponent* MeshComp, class UAnimSequenceBase* Animation)
     Super::Notify(MeshComp, Animation);
     // How do I get character here?

You should be able to use the Mesh Component's owner to get your character, like so:

 AActor* AnimationOwner = MeshComp->GetOwner();
 if (AFPSCharacter* Character = Cast<AFPSCharacter>(AnimationOwner))
     // Do stuff

Works like a charm :) For some reason I thought that wasn't the actual instance of the skeletal mesh. I misinterpreted this line in the docs

SkeletalMeshComponent is used to create an instance of an animated SkeletalMesh asset.

Thank you!
