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"

BP Trigger is not included in packaged game (works in editor) Why?

I am using a Line Trace to load information into my HUD, depending on which object the character looks at. BP_Trigger actors are used to trigger the collision with the Line Trace.

This works well in the editor. The BP_Trigger actors are not visible, and the HUD updates correctly. All good there.

But when packaging (and when launching to Windows) it does not seem to include the BP_Triggers. I have used debugging to check that the Line Trace is working, and this is fine in the packaged application.

Does anybody know what the problem might be? Why would BP_Triggers work in the editor, but not in the packaged version? I've tried making them visible, and they still don't appear.

I'm using version 4.20.3 on a Windows-64 machine. I've tried development & shipping builds, but both are not working. It works beautifully in the editor, so this is very frustrating. It would be great to get some help.

Product Version: UE 4.20

Make sure the actor of your BP Trigger is not set to Editor Only
