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 disappears sporadically


I am having a problem with a moving platform actor. I have it set to begin a new timeline when its box collision component (detect_enemy) stops overlapping with its enemy character (enemy red). About half of the time it works fine and the platforms begins the new timeline; the rest of the time, the platform simply disappears once the enemy is destroyed.

Here is the blue print that triggers the new timeline. Any help would be appreciated, and of course I can provide any more info that might be needed. Thanks!

A screenshot for On Component Begin Overlap would have helped but I think the problem is that you have 2 timelines playing together. Stop one when you start the other.

And you should shake if it isn't better to plug into Play from Start.

cool, thanks! I wound up adding a sequence node to my end overlap chain and put the sequence node's first output plug into the first timeline's stop input, but the result is the same.
