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"

Casting to an actor variable

Hi

I'm trying to make a puzzle game with basic mechanics such as buttons, levers, etc. So i'm trying to make a door blueprint in which i can choose to which mechanic it casts to by making a blueprint in which i can choose the type of actor it spawns and then the door casts to it trough a reference variable. The problem is that i need to know whether or not the actor is active (like if the button is pressed) so i'm trying to figure out a way for the blueprint were i choose the mechanic to cast to the actor variable.

Sorry if it sounds a bit confusing, here is a visual interpretation alt text

I already have most of it set up i'm just curious on how to cast to the actor blueprint in the mechanic blueprint. Thank you.

Ok, i managed to fix it. Instead of trying to let the mechanics blueprint cast to the actors i did it in reverse and let the actors play a custom event in the mechanics blueprint which door casts to.
