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"

Converting Actor To Pawn results in Tick Event to not fire.

In this photo you can see it as an actor firing the tick event fine as expected.


And in this photo you can see that for some reason it will not fire the tick event after reparenting to Pawn.


If anyone has any ideas or advice it would be greatly appreciated. I was going to simply copy over all my functions but you can't copy functions for some reason, you can't copy macros, you can't simply copy most things and there's not much else for me to do aside from make a bug report.

Edit: I have more information.

I was able to resolve this issue to some extent. I have a Base NPC blueprint which I create children blueprints with for each type of monster in my game.

One of these children was a spider character and when I converted the actor to a pawn the tick event for that particular child would no longer fire regardless if I deleted / replaced it in the level it wasn't working properly.

I created a new child blueprint from BaseNPC after converting it to pawn and as long as it wasn't already inheriting from BaseNPC the tick event would fire properly. No idea why converting to pawn breaks child actors but it does, so be weary.
