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"

What object do I need to cast to "PoseableMeshComponent"?


Can you please take a look at this screenshot and tell me what object I need to "cast" to it?

alt text

I tried:

  • Get Player Pawn

  • Get Player Character

  • Get Player Controller

  • Get Owner

  • Try Get Pawn Owner

  • Get Game Mode

  • Mesh -> Get Anim Instance

NONE of these work. They all either give off warnings or straight up errors. It's pissing me off.

I even tried to right click it "Convert to pure cast". Pff... "Pure cast", yeah, right...

I feel like maybe I don't understand casting well enough. Maybe. I don't know. I don't understand why the "Object" pin is in there in the first place. I just want it to work. I have used this "casting" system in the past, for collision overlaps, changing variables/references from/to other blueprints, etc., and it seems to work ok. But for this? No such luck.
