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"

Get overlapping actors is not picking up anything

Heya everybody

So, I have made have this game (right now still setting up the player's character movement) in which I have implemented a one way floor (the kind you can phase through if you come to it from under) and right now I want to give the player the ability of 'hopping off' the platforms.

How I've made it, or at least plan to make it, is to add a sphere component under the player character and when the player jumps while crouched, he will check what it's overlapping and call in the function within the platform to make it transparent. The issue I have is that the 'get overlapping actors' isn't picking up anything and I have no idea what i'm doing wrong.

I tried to check and tweak the collision presets of both the platforms and the component but for some reason it's still not reading it

Any help or advice would be appreciated.

Have you tried checking "Generate overlap events" for collisions in both BPs in pic3?

I'm ashamed to say that was what solved it >>. As I said I played around with the collision settings, but seems I was playing around with platform's box trigger rather than the root component instead. So yeah, all i needed was to tick the generate overlap boxes. Must be tired >>

Anyway. the mechanic works, which means I get to move to the next point of the list. Thank you very much
