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"

Overlap events in Standalone behaving incorrectly

So I have a box component on an actor which I'm using as a trigger volume. However the overlap events are behaving incorrectly for the standalone build. As shown in these gifs, showing OnBeginOverlap

Here in PIE the overlap event prints all of the actors spawned in the tile as well as the Player when he enters, which is the intended behavior

Here in the standalone version only the tile itself and the starting platform are printed https://gfycat.com/FamousWatchfulAmericanrobin

I've tested this on 4.15.3 and it appears to act the same. For completeness here is all code and blueprint related to the BoxComponent


 UBoxComponent* BoundsVolume;


 BoundsVolume = CreateDefaultSubobject<UBoxComponent>(TEXT("Bounds Volume"));    


 BoundsVolume->OnComponentBeginOverlap.AddDynamic(this, &ATile::OnBoundsBeginOverlap);
 BoundsVolume->OnComponentEndOverlap.AddDynamic(this, &ATile::OnBoundsEndOverlap);

BP just printing the names: alt text

Hello Superwig,

I attempted reproducing what you've reported using the code you provided but I'm not seeing any discrepancies. Could you show the code/blueprint logic that "prints all of the actors spawned in the tile"? The blueprint logic shown would only output the name of the Character, since it's the overlapping actor and it is doing that correctly.

I forgot to mention that the tile is spawned into the world at beginplay. The code and blueprint that is printing the actors spawned is shown above, though as you can see in the second link provided that the Player isn't printed when he overlaps the new tile.
