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"

Event BeginPlay Node Not Working?

Hi, Today I launched UE 4.15 to work on my game which I was very excited about and to my disappointment nothing worked like it used to yesterday when I saved and quit the engine, so I thought to my self what could be causing the widgets to fail the cast leaving the variables null. So I looked at the level bp which spawns my main menu widget and this is what I found. The Event BeginPlay node was clearly not working because It wasn't spawning the widget so I tried plugging the Use Button (E) To see if that could trigger the widget to spawn and It did. I don't really what could of caused this as everything worked perfectly yesterday, but for now until I get an answer I can't do anything :/

Best Regards, NijoMeister

Hello NijoMeister,

I was not able to reproduce your issue on our end. I have a couple of questions that will help me narrow down your issue.

  1. Can you reproduce this issue in a new project?

  2. If so could you provide a detailed list of steps so I can reproduce this issue on our end?

  3. Are you using a custom GameState or GameMode in your project?

Hi, Thomas thanks for the answer! Hope this helps :)

  1. I can't :p Everything seems to be working fine.

  • Can't answer because I don't really know what happen and yesterday everything was fine.

  1. I'm only using a custom Game Instance, But even when I change it to default it doesn't work.

Best Regards, NijoMeister
