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"

Spawn projectile class in SkeletalMeshSocket


i'm trying to spawn my projectile class in a SkeletalMeshSocket, so that i can expose this Socket to BP to easily change from right handed to left handed.

But i can't get it to work properly: this is my code right now, which works and spawns the projectile in the character

 void APPRProjectile::BeginPlay()

 if (Role == ROLE_Authority)
     if (Instigator)
         SetActorTransform(Instigator->GetActorTransform(), false);

     SpawnOrigin = GetActorLocation();
     SpawnRotation = GetActorRotation().GetNormalized();

 const FVector Direction = SpawnRotation.Vector();
 const float Speed = GetLaunchSpeed();

 Launch(Direction, Speed);

i tried to use GetMesh()->GetSocketLocation ("RightHand"), but this didnt work

Can someone enlighten me how to do this please
