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 check which Pawn is being possessed?

I have 2 player control schemes , a First Person Character and a HMD locomotion pawn which are being possessed by the player controller when either one is being used and being destroyed and unpossessed when not in use . I need to do different things if one or the other is selected. I want to set up a branch if HMD Locomotion Pawn is in use and then go through some blueprint nodes. I tried making it set a variable boolean when HMD Locomotion Pawn is possessed and set it to false when unpossessed but that variable is not being set correctly.

Is there a way to just check if the Player controller is possessing the HMD Locomotion Pawn blueprint ? or if it is possessing the First Person Characteralt text?

The node you're looking for is "GetControlledPawn" inside the PlayerController

Also consider using Interfaces and more object oriented approach, which would make it so you don't have to check what class of pawn is using the controller.
