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"

Anim instance is broke after changing skeletal mesh

hello, I'm on 4.17.2 I've noticed a bug and just wanted to report it.
I have a skeletal mesh component inside of a pawn BP with an animation BP assigned to it.
If I change the skeletal mesh to another that doesn't have the same skeleton, and also change the animation BP assigned to it, the engine doesn't play that animation in game (In the editor).
I have to delete this skeletal mesh and create a brand new one in order to make everything work fine.
It's just a slight bug, although I hope the report will help.

Could you attach a copy of your project so I can look over and troubleshoot it?

Hello Trey, I'm sorry but In the meanwhile I past on 4.18, and I didn't try it on this version. Although I can reproduce it in 4.17 in a blank project and send it to you soon.

Are you still able to send me that repro project so I can take a look at? I wasn't able to reproduce this on my end.
