    the other thing is i have made my npc's all randomly generate stats. and i have these stats displaying on a widget and i wish to show this widget for the specified npc but cant figure how to reference it from the event dialogue blueprint you instruct in tutorial for creating events.. some handy small tutorials would be great to give me a idea on some things.. i am only 3-4 months into unreal so excuse my lack of knowledge i am trying to learn all that i can
    on another note i notice when you create a dialogue event is has considering player and npc actor nodes on override event
    what are these for?

    Thank you.
    Hi. Sorry for a delay, I was checking the emails, but forgot to check the forum thread. Will answer your posts tomorrow.

    Each line(aka node) has a nodeid, so instead of getting the next node, you can get a random one instead. You'd have to modify the dialoguewidget, where it requests the next logical node. If you go a bit more into detail, I'll be able to give more precise information.

    Worked on an update today, will be sending it to Epic in a few hours. They usually approve new versions within 3-4 days.

    Thanks for the report, fixed it.

    Also found that empty NPC nodes don't fire any events, so I fixed it as well.

    Fixed it.

    Also, remember when I say in the tutorial that you have to access things through PlayerController? That is no longer the case, as you now have access to nodes like GetAllActors, SpawnActor, Linetrace, etc.

    Added a category called "DoNotShow". If you put a variable into that category, it will not be exposed to dialogue nodes. That category won't exist by default in your conditions/events, so just create it and put your variables into it.

    Alright, ran into another bug. Basic timers do not work inside of the event bp's (I assume its no different for conditions). This is getting to be a bit much. We love the plugin but these issues need to be addressed. Just to recap, the current bugs are as follows.
    • Events are double firing causing serious issues. It breaks the plugin and we are relying on proper event firing.
    • Unexposed variables showing up when they shouldn't.
    • Unexposed variables (if clicked on in the dialogue tree) have tendency to crash the engine.
    • Timers are not working. The BP's are compiling with no errors or attempt by the system to remove the nodes.

    Any ETA on when will these issues will be taken care of Code spartan? The event bug is really holding us back.

    btw, It would be good in the future that events and conditions can have the reference of the npcActor

    I forgot to add this to my last post. There's a smaller bug that makes things hard to work with in the dialogue tree. Variables that are not set as exposed still show up in the dialogue tree and they (sometimes) crash the system when you click on them. Not a fun experience. Any ETA on a fix for these issues Code Spartan?

    I’ve been using this plugin for a while now and enjoying the updates to the events and conditions, but I’ve been noticing a bug in the stock setup that’s causing some issues…


    After a lot of headache as to what was going on, I set up a blank project with a fresh plugin, and it seems that events placed on an NPC reply fire both when the text is shown as well as when that node is exited from (from continue button or next dialogue choice). In the meantime, I’ve modified our widget so that it doesn’t run “do events” when you click through to the next screen, but that also means I can only use events on NPC nodes, not PC choices. Obviously not ideal.


    Any ideas what’s going on or how to fix the issue? If the issue isn’t clear or you can’t replicate it, I can send you more details or the project if need be, but we’ve replicated the issue on two separate systems.
