[Quick BP to C++] Core Redirector - Asset to C++

Added a struct core redirector in \Config\DefaultEngine.ini, tested in the following formats (not all at once):


Redirector is supposed to redirect a blueprint struct asset to a c++ USTRUCT (BlueprintType), however it does not redirect anything. The rules in this example were added one by one during testing. Adding multiple lines at once results in a logged message that there are “conflicting rules”.

Properties, datatables, BP nodes using old struct datatype (BP) should be redirected to c++ datatype.

Actual result:
Nothing happens.


Can this be automated or am I going to spend all summer on manually making / breaking / clicky clicky blueprint nodes?

Have you tried to fix the conflicting rules? Some are the exact same OldName :slight_smile:

But other then that I think that for redirect Blueprint stuff you should do something like this (I have never tried BP to code only code to code):


“(Optional) Specifies a change to the underlying class of the UCLASS. This is generally used to change a Blueprint class to a native class.”

I tested the rules one by one, I just posted them all at once to show what I have tried already. At one point I tried them all at once just to see if the log would show anything and that’s when the “conflict” message appeared, so at least I know it is doing something.
Using the rules one by one results in absolute nothing, not even a log message.

I’m going to test this, I thought documentation wrote this for UCLASS only. Will reply after testing.

This format has been tested and does not work:


Did some test and I can’t get it to work either for BPStruct to CodeStruct.
Nothing even happen if I try to redirect BPStruct to BPStruct…

Redirect CodeStruct to CodeStruct work fine.

So not sure if there are some more magic you need to do or if it’s just broken.

Related for c++ to c++ and probably BP to c++, to make the matter more complex the redirector may fail silently after adding it properly.

Hi! Have you been successful?
I’ve been trying all day to replace the BP structure with C++. I was able to do it with ENUM, but the structure is unresponsive.

Not at all. I gave up fighting. This is another dead / half working feature. Best to start from scratch in c++ and develop modules one by one, then at the absolute last moment implement blueprints if you absolutely have to.
