I have a new Macbook pro, latest version of OSX. I cannot get the input key press to work in Blueprint. I tried the simplest version of them all (screenshot attached) and put a breakpoint - but I can’t get it to trigger. I did try using the inbuilt keyboard instead of the USB keyboard, restarted everything many times, but to no avail.
I did put a breakpoint to check - but it doesn’t trigger. I’m left to think that either I’m missing something real obvious.
If anyone had this before and managed to fix it, it would be great to hear how
Are you working out of a Blank project or are you using one of the Template projects? If you are using one of the Templates, the Character blueprint in use may have Block Input enabled by default (you can check by opening the Character blueprint, going to Defaults and looking for the Input section > Block Input).
If all else fails, you may just need to Enable Input for your blueprint, but adding a BeginPlay event and connecting an Enable Input node to that event (you’ll want to pass in your PlayerController using a Get PlayerController node).
You want to make sure that you enable-input for your blueprint (it would be a performance issue if every single blueprint actor is listening for input events). You can do this using the “Enable Input” node, pictured here:
Here’s our tutorial video demonstrating how to set up input to work with your blueprint: - YouTube
i tried doing all of the above and I can’t seem to get any input on a pawn. I can trigger inputs from the PlayerController Blueprint I’m using by default but by putting an input like mouse wheel for example, isn’t being called in the Character Blueprint I’m using.
I built my project via Top Down Blueprint Template but my Character was created from scratch. So my PlayerController is the default controller that comes with the Top Down Template
Are you using a Mac with 4.01? I am and I had exactly the same trouble as you with none of the above working for me. Nothing I did would allow me to send input to a pawn. Anyway, I downloaded 4.1 and this fixed the issue so I assumed it was a bug. Bear in mind I had to create a new project too but a soon as I had done these two things all the steps I’d been trying previously worked.
I was experiencing the exact same problem also with the Top-down project. None of the above solutions will work since the input handler at the top of the stack is the MyController Blueprint, which has its Defaults->Input->Block Input property set to TRUE. Flip that bit to FALSE and then user input gets sent down the stack to MyPlayer blueprint or any other object that is registered to listen.
We have not heard back from you in a few days, so we are marking this post as Resolved for tracking purposes. If you are still experiencing the issue you reported, please respond to this message with additional information and we will offer further assistance.
Ok Yes, but for me and other the problem is not this, you have explained how create an input event like jump and attack but my issue, and the issue of the post owner is another, we can’t raise the event also after the creation of it. enable input don’t change the situation but the solution of Goshand it’s good
