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"

Particle System Components don't show after Play.

Hi there. I'm using the Github version 4.17.2.

Can anyone replicate this ?

Particle system component work fine in the editor, but aren't showing once I press Play.

Auto activate is checked, Visible is checked, Hidden in game is unchecked, Render in main pass is checked, All detail Modes (Low, Medium, High) have been tried. I've used emitter from previous versions and brand new emitters created from scratch with this engine.

Stand alone particle systems work fine, BTW.

Product Version: UE Github Master branch

Answering my own question. :P

Actor has to tick for particle systems to work.

If you are using C++ to create your Blueprints, make sure all virtual functions call their relevant Super:: function. My blueprint was based on a sub-class whose parent had a BeginPlay() that didn't call Super::BeginPlay() and that prevented it from ticking.
