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"

MultiSphere Trace help

My M.S Trace is giving me trouble, basically if i set my actor to overlap it detects all of the actors in it but doesn't fire my logic. On the other hand if it's set to block it only detects one and then fires my logic. Anyone know what this is or how to fix it? alt text

Can we see your blueprint OnComponentBeginOverlap setup or OnActorBeginOverlap setup. Whichever you are using to process the overlap?

Actually i am using the line trace from my character and firing the logic there i assumed the overlap would work with traces like block and still fire the logic from another BP is that incorrect?

No. The line traces functions just return information on objects between your start and end. You will need to check the result and if valid call your logic.

Generally when a user is looking for overlaps, they will add one of the overlap events to their actor and call the custom logic handlers from there. Internally UE does this through the code. As am actor moves.they cast out overlaps or traces and calls OnComponenetBeginOverlap to allow users to determine how to handle the contact information.
