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"

Actor component not showing on component list

Hello bois

I've been trying to create a weapon component deriving from UActorComponent (and a custom interface). here's the code I'm using in the constructor of the actor owning it:

     DefaultWpn = CreateDefaultSubobject<UDefaultWeaponComponent>("Big gun");
     AddOwnedComponent(DefaultWpn);

DefaultWpn is an instance variable of type UDefaultWeaponComponent*. Here't the "but", when I run the game, the component is not visible in the component list of the actor, nor can I use its methods. Am I doing something wrong?

Yours

i think it's because you're not doing the "SetupAttachment()" that has to be done after creating a SubObject so its spawning in world 0,0,0

DefaultWpn = CreateDefaultSubobject("Big gun"); DefaultWpn->SetupAttachment( // RootComponent, or another component, or a socket, or whatever you want );

Ups, my bad, I just needed to make the ptr edit everywhere. The method problem was elsewhere (my controller wasn't binded.
