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"

Salut MasBASS,

I think there is a little bit of a misunderstanding regarding class inheritance. Your 'ACCPSpawner' class inherits from 'APaperSpriteActor' which main purpose is to provide a 'UPaperSpriteComponent'. So you don't need to add another 'UPaperSpriteComponent' in 'ACCPSpawner' class.

Now, to initialize the sprite of the Paper Sprite component stored inside 'APaperSpriteActor' class from your own class, do as follows :

MyPaperSpriteActor.h (which is 'ACCPSpawner' class in your project)

 class MYPROJECTCPP_API AMyPaperSpriteActor : public APaperSpriteActor
     // Sets default values for this actor's properties
     AMyPaperSpriteActor(const FObjectInitializer& ObjectInitializer);


 AMyPaperSpriteActor::AMyPaperSpriteActor(const FObjectInitializer& ObjectInitializer)
     : Super(ObjectInitializer)
     // Set this actor to call Tick() every frame.  You can turn this off to improve performance if you don't need it.
     PrimaryActorTick.bCanEverTick = true;
     ConstructorHelpers::FObjectFinder<UPaperSprite> SpriteAssetObj(TEXT("PaperSprite'/Game/AH_Issues/C++SpriteNotLoading/PaperSprite1.PaperSprite1'"));
     if (SpriteAssetObj.Succeeded())

P.S. Please, next time post your c++ code as text, not as images.

Hope it helps!
