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"

Casting to a GameMode breaks the editor

Reproduction Steps:

1) Download the ShooterGame Project Sample

2) Create a new blueprint that inherits from the ShooterGameMode c++ class & save it. (You don't need to modify it)

3) In any other blueprint try getting all actors of class of that new blueprint and then casting to it (I don't believe it matters where you do the cast as long as its a reachable node)

4) Compile & Save

5) Attempt to reopen the editor (The editor will now get stuck at 71%)

I can send the modified shooter sample but since its 1.5gigs and the steps are very simple I don't really see the point.

BUMP! I have spent 2 days fighting with my GameMode class. Same symptoms, editor stuck at 71% as soon as you have BP Game Mode inherited from c++ class.

I think it's a high priority bug!

BUMP. Casting to BP_ShooterHud also causes this 71% error...... I believe casting to any hud might also do this... This bug is EXTREMELY annoying
