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 do I cast to an actor who isn't the player in a widget

I am trying to cast to a character that is not the player to attach the widget to it (I'm casting in the widget) I have tried making a variable but I have no way to reference to the other actor so I ask how do I reference that actor.

Did you try "Get all actors of Class" -> Character

There you get an array with all Characters, then you just have to find the right one
