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"

Collider types set to overlap don't generate Overlap events.

Hey everyone,

For some reason beyond my understanding when I package my game the two distinct collision profiles insists on firing "Hit" events despite the interaction between them is set to only overlap and neither two objects have "Simulation generates Hit events" enabled.

EDIT: In editor the objects work as intended and only produce the undesired 'Hit' result on package. EDIT 2: I have now set both collision profiles to ignore all(I still query the collider though) channels(trace and object) and they still fire off the hit events.

The first object(CapsuleCollisionComponent) has this collision profile: alt text

And the second object(StaticMeshComponent) has this collision profile: alt text

Please let me know if there's anything else I need to provide and I'll post that ASAP.

Thanks, Z

Are those unwanted hit events are coming exactly from those 2 components? Or maybe from the same actors but different components?

Another question is: how exactly are you checking for hits? Can you please post your blueprint or code?

Yes the unwanted hit events are coming from exactly those two components. One component is the static mesh component on my projectile class and the other is the hitbox on the player.

I am checking for hits on the static mesh component's "On Component Begin Overlap".

Here is the overlap and hit events. The hit event should never be fired and yet it is the only one being fired in the packaged build. alt text alt text

I HAVE A FIX!(but you're not gonna like it):

By changing the blueprint nativization method from Inclusive to Disabled in "Project Settings>Packaging>Blueprints>Blueprint Nativization Method" fixed the packaging problems I was having. Not sure why that is maybe we can get some UE staff in here to take a look/post a bug about it if it is just that. :)
