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"

Hello. The first character has a sword (StaticMesh component), and the second character - a shield (also StaticMesh component). And we need to know the position of impact of a sword - shield.

But Hit need to use both objects physics ... but they can not use the physics of ... So how do I determine the position of the collision? Please Help me!

OnComponentBeginOverlap doesn't really give you a good HitResult. Most of the things are't populated, so your best bet is to trace or sweep manually after OnComponentBeginOverlap is triggered.

That's the actual current way to do it.

I would use the OnBeginOverlapp and use the "Other Actor" to get the ActorLocation this isn't perfect but is kind of close, you should also be able to do it with actor components location to get a bit closer.
