So, I was all excited to come home and spawn in as a dino. This should be really simple with the way UE4 is setup, and given that I now have the ability to override the game mode. Nope. I set everything up just like the simple instructions outlined, but, when I spawn in my default pawn does not change. To test and see if it actually changed my game mode, I went in and and changed the experience required to level just to see if I could quickly change something. Worked fine.
Has anyone successfully overwritten the default pawn with anything? This is super duper frustrating.
