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"

Why does 4.18 have no 'DELAY NODE' in BP Functions??!!

Nothing more to add, the title is the question...

I have to work in this version for one project. I CAN'T EVEN MAKE A SIMPLE FLICKERING LIGHT!!! Here are my BP and Function. THE FUNCTION ALLOWS EVERYTHING EXCEPT A DELAY NODE FOR SOME SILLY REASON!

HOURS AND HOURS LATER, THIS QUESTION IS STILL WAITING FOR APPROVAL FROM A MODERATOR MUCH LESS HELP!!! LOL LOL

WOW.

Never mind As usual I figured it out by myself. (I always do..) I exported the candle. In 3ds Max I added a Plane and thin Shell modifier at the wick, then rotated it 90° (and flipped it 180° for good measure), I made it a single object, gave the planes Material ID 2. Back in Ue4 I assigned the flame material to the planes (element 2) made a blueprint of the single piece candle to add a pointlight, in the Event Graph I did a looping delay on random range light levels and another random from range for the timings,.. I gave the candle a SubSurface Profile, and made the light have a wide source radius, soft source etc... I think that's it!

There has never been a delay node in a function, ONLY the Event Graph has this feature. If you want a function to complete something later you need to set a timer (SetTimerByEvent or SetTimerByFunctionName).
