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 to fix

I can't make my animations work, it seems that it doesn't know which character to attach the animatios to.

I've been following this tutorial:

The "Get Player Character" Node returns null, therefore the error.

Do you have a valid player character?

Is the script inside a Pawn or an Actor?

I do have a character, which I can play in the scene, and the script is inside an animation blueprint. The character responds to input, it moves around the level as it should, but doesn't play the running animation, only the idle one, so yeah, the problem is where you stated, but I can't seem to fix it.alt text

EDIT: Manage to make the animations work, still error appears.
