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"

I am creating an endless runner, and I need the box collision because the other autogenerated ones do not block objects as good.

Check if your spawning location is correct. And if your Spawning Actor is valid. (On Spawnactor Return value is valid node). You also can try to change the Collision handling override enum to something else like always spawn.

Thank you, I tried different collision enums, then changed the collision present of the box collisio, and it worked!
