    Why does this happen?

    1. Start new code project
    2. Create new class based on PostProcessComponent
    3. Build
    4. Fail spectacularly

    Is someone able to explain what's going on here? I've been able to solve virtually everything else I've come across in c++ but this one still eludes me. The code is simple and generated by UE and all it's doing is extending a post-process component. There's no other code in it yet.

    Code:

    If you look at the file, it has this on line 15:

    const FPostProcessSettings* Settings;

    Apparently it doesn't know FPostProcessSettings yet, so I think you could try to include the header file that declares this class or struct before you include "Components/PostProcessComponent.h"

      Ah, the order matters? Thanks, I'll give a few more things a go. I've re-treading old ground but I can't remember where I stalled last time!
