Pickup tutorial on sidescroller (problem)

Hi there, i have followed the blueprint pickup on youtube and all works fine. However, if i try to apply the exact same thing on a sidescroller starter game it doesn’t seem to work.

The blueprint i create from the prop doesn’t seem to respond, even if i set a simple: key press > print string message. The print string works on the “my character” blueprint though.

Any help will be appreciated, thank you.

I had this same problem. I have no idea if this is the correct way to fix it, as I’m completely new to UE (any version), but it worked for me:

  1. Go into the MyCharacter blueprint
  2. Go under Components
  3. Select the [ROOT]CapsuleComponent in the Components window.
  4. Tick the “Generate Overlap Events” under Collision in the Details window.

Now it should work.

Thank you mate, it works!
