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"

How do I trigger an event when a static mesh(sphere ball) overlaps a box trigger?

Hi I am trying to simulate a football scenario. I have created a box trigger and a sphere as well as a third person character. I want a situation where the third person character kicks the red button over the trigger box which then triggers an event; let's say "print string" . ![alt text][1]

You need to hook up the "cast node" execution pin to the print string. Right now it is skipping the cast node entirely. Also, you want to connect "other actor" not "overlapped actor". Overlapped actor is the actor that got overlapped not the one doing the overlapping if that makes sense. Overlapped actor == trigger box. Check out video #1 and #25 I think will be most helpful for this situation as it deals with casting and creating references.
