    I'm glad my problem with testing multiplayer wasn't an isolated situation. Where would I find BlueprintEditorUtils.cpp to add the code?

    ExtraLifeMatt, mostly just wanted to see how active you were with the plugin, this post secured a purchase from us! <3 I will let you know if we need any help. Excited to use this for our project. The plugin itself looks top quality and the visual editor must have taken forever. A+ man.

    I do them when I get a particularly good (or frequent) question, or random inspiration. So, maybe?

    EDIT: Is there a tutorial you were hoping for? I'm always open to ideas.

    See this post on how to fix that (requires Engine source):

    Weird... Not sure why 3D wouldn't work... The only difference between the two is a bit more math. But I'll check it out.

    Dynamic montages are weird - they're effectively "Fire and Forget", I really suggest you use the Ability Animation Node if you can as it gives you far more control and will automatically blend between ability animations.

    Odd. The problem fixed itself after restarting Unreal.

    Nope, I've never seen that before. Sounds like you may have a weird config file that isn't properly referencing the Tags outside of the Editor. I'd make sure you have the tags properly setup in your project options / tweak some setting so it gets re-saved, and try again.

    I don't quite understand your issue, looks you have it set properly on all the images you showed.

    That might have been the tutorial I haven't done yet. I'll check it out.

    Custom Event uses the same paradigm, there is an "OnCustomEvent" method that you can overload and is called when ever you have a Custom Event Task. The name of the event is passed along with the event.

    I actually cover a lot of what you're trying to do in my Chain Lightning Tutorial:
