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 do I connect physical meshes with sockets?

Hey, recently I have been having a problem with ue4 and sockets. After debugging I figured out it has something to do with the path. (Meaning it can't find the asset). I was wondering if anyone could help.


PlayerInputComponent->BindAction("Weapon1", IE_Released, this, &AStealthGameCharacter::OnSwitchWeapon1); //some lines later

UClass *m_cUClassWeapon = StaticLoadClass(UObject::StaticClass(), nullptr, TEXT("knifeinprogressbetter"));

 if (!m_cUClassWeapon) {
     GEngine->AddOnScreenDebugMessage(-1, 5.0f, FColor::Yellow, TEXT("Can't find asset!"));


 else {
     AActor *m_cWeapon = GetWorld()->SpawnActor<AActor>(m_cUClassWeapon);
     m_cWeapon->AttachRootComponentTo(GetMesh(), PlayerWeaponSocketName, EAttachLocation::SnapToTarget, true);

} If anyone could figure this out I would appreciate it greatly! Thanks
