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"

Tick is never called, even though bCanEverTick is set to true.

Here's the code:


 class ATestActor : public AActor
     virtual void Tick(float DeltaTime) override;


 ATestActor::ATestActor(const class FPostConstructInitializeProperties& PCIP)
     : Super(PCIP)
     PrimaryActorTick.bCanEverTick = true;
 void ATestActor::Tick(float DeltaTime)
     if (GEngine)
         GEngine->AddOnScreenDebugMessage(-1, 5.0f, FColor::Yellow, TEXT("Tick"));

The "Tick"-text is never displayed on the screen, which would mean that the Tick()-function never gets called. Why? I enabled bCanEverTick and it's still not ticking...

You also need to add:

 PrimaryActorTick.bStartWithTickEnabled = true;
 PrimaryActorTick.bAllowTickOnDedicatedServer = true;

You can omit the second one if you don't want actor to tick on server.
