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"

so to clarify your looking for the begin overlap event to not be able to trigger until you press the h key? or do you want to overlap, then not spawn until the h key is pressed?

i would suggest looking into the gate node.

another solution would be to use a Boolean variable and a branch. for example on begin overlap set the bool to true. then off of the h input have a branch that checks is the variable is set to true.
