The event does not work tick in the actor blueprint components. I made a component with eventеtick in 4.16 version - everything works, after I converted the project to 4.17, the event tick does not work for the component. Same thing, and create a clean component in version 4.17.
I do have the same problem.
edit: still with 4.17.1
Timers in objects (object class) also do not work. Do not call a function inside yourself.
In version 4.16, everything works.
I am also experiencing this issue after migrating from 4.16. Had too hook all component ticks to their parent actors event tick. Is the fix coming in 4.17.2?
