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"

Hitbox button doesn't work?

Hello guys :)

So I got this two babies over here: alt text

alt text

To my limited understanding, a click on the hitbox now should trigger the same event when I press the keyboard button. Am I missing something? (Chances are I do :)

I named the hitboxes and on HitBoxClick I switch to the node based on the name of the clicked hitbox. Or ain't I?

Hey there,

typin "showdebug hitbox" in the console will show you your hitboxes ingame at runtime. With that you can check, if your hitboxes are placed on the right spot and if they have the right size. If they are all in place, than make sure your controller has click events enabled. If this i also true, than use the Blueprint graphs to debug your game. First check if the Keyboard buttons work (the wire should go red/yellow/orange, or something like that. If this works, try clicking a hitbox. If the wire from "event receive hit box click" lights up but nothing behind, than your Hitboxes have the wrong names. The name needs to be exactly the same as the names in the Switch.

I hope you can find the error this this (:
