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"

UE4 crashing when change event dispatcher name

Hello all,

I'm hopeful that someone else has run into this issue and has found a fix:

I have changed the name of an event dispatcher and now I cannot delete it, nor rename it back, nor use it in my level BP. Basically my entire game's production is halted because I can't do anything since UE4 crashes now when I try to correct the event dispatcher or try to "play" the level.

The original name of the class BPs dispatcher was "YouHitMe" and it was used in my level BP. alt text

I then went back and changed the name to "MusicWallHit" in my class BP. alt text

So now when I went back to my level BP replace "YouHitMe" with "MusicWallHit", UE4 crashes every time. And it crashes when I try to Play the level. It also crashes when I attempt to delete either the dispatcher from the class BP or the event from the level BP. And finally, when I tried one more time to delete the "YouHitMe" event from the level BP, my computer blue screened.

I'm not sure what to do besides completely redo the game and take note to NEVER change event dispatcher names.
