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"

Unable to change movement speed


I've been having an issue getting my enemies to walk at different speeds when moving through the level. I have tried changing the max walk speed on the movement component for the character which is what I've found by looking through Google and the forums, but this doesn't seem to change the speed at which the character moves.

I've been moving my actor with "Move To Location or Actor". I've gone ahead and set up an empty project with just the barebones to get the character to move and changing the max movement speed doesn't seem to effect the speed the character walks out in here either.

Here is the code used to make the character move through the level, which he does correctly, just always at the same speed.


Here is a link to the project zip


I would greatly appreciate any help!

Hello Snackmix,

This is due to you calling the Move To Location, which does the action over time, or Actor on Tick. This means that this function is being called, and therefore reset, every frame so about 60 times a second. This causes the function to keep interrupting itself before going very far. If you call this function on Begin Play, it'll move at the correct speed.
