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"

Superfluous nullptr check?

I saw the following code in PaperSprite.cpp

Maybe I am totally missing something, but how can the check (BodySetup == nullptr) ever fail?

I know it is a GC system, but I don't even see a reason to first set it to nullptr.. NewObject sets the value anyways.

I ask this mostly to see whether my understanding of the GC is correct :)

 void UPaperSprite::RebuildCollisionData()
     UBodySetup* OldBodySetup = BodySetup;
     // Ensure we have the data structure for the desired collision method
     switch (SpriteCollisionDomain)
     case ESpriteCollisionMode::Use3DPhysics:
         BodySetup = nullptr;
         if (BodySetup == nullptr)
             BodySetup = NewObject<UBodySetup>(this);

I believe you're right.

Checking git log. commit 775efd976321dc2f66fc0f87f9eed65c7c3e9439

BodySetup3D and BodySetup2D is replaced by BodySetup, but the checking is not handled properly
