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"

Simpler way: 1. Create an Attenuation asset. 2. Assign that Attenuation to the fireplace Sound Cue asset's attenuation. 3. Give the Sound Cue some Occlusion settings so the sound doesn't escape the room unless the room has cracks in it or someone is listening close to the wall. 4. Place the sound cue in the level, directly in front of the fireplace. 5. Delete all the blueprint stuff in your screenshot.

With this setup you shouldn't need any triggers or logic - the sound engine will take care of everything.

But if you really want that level of control to basically switch it on and off, then do the following to your blueprint: 1. Get rid of the destroy sound node. 2. Get rid of the Delay node. 3. Everything that came after the Delay node should come out of an OnEndActorOverlap (TriggerVolume) event.

That should get you at least halfway there, but I am not sure how you are handling it fading in, in the first place.
