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"

Cast To Object Wildcard Error

I'm trying to set a boolean variable to trigger my spawner to... spawn. But I get an error when I try to cast to the spawner blueprint. I'm new to unreal and I don't know what to put in the object pin to get this to work. Any help is great, Thanks.

you need to plug a reference to the actor your trying to affect into the object. so in your case you need an instance of the bp_itemspawner. theres many ways to get a reference including traces, overlaps, public variables, and blueprint communication.

also your cast will never actually get fired anyway since you are destroying the actor containing this script prior to the cast node.
