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's Component value changed in the instance is not updated for the Actor's Constructor

I'm trying to understand this:

I create an Actor Component with a String variable, with a default value of TEXT 1. Then I added the Component to an Actor, and placed a Print String in the Actor's Constructor that prints the Component's String Variable.

I place the actor in the level and move it using the Editor, TEXT 1 is printed as expected.

Then I open the Actor, select the Component in the Components Window, then change the value of the variable from TEXT 1 to TEXT 2.

Move the Actor again using the Editor and TEXT 2 is printed as expected.

But if I set the Component's variable to Instance editable, and change the value from TEXT 2 to TEXT 3 in the Actor's Instance placed in the level, and move the Actor using the Editor, TEXT 2 is printed instead of TEXT 3.

Why is this happening?
