Post Event by event name or by AK Event doesn't produce the same result

0 votes

[This case was test in Unreal Blueprint, with Wwise 2019.1.1.6977]

Post Event by event name does not seems to work and is not triggering the specific event. On the other hand, by selecting the parameter Ak Event instead of writing the Event Name, the event is playing.

But, if I have a Post Event with an Ak Event selected in my blueprint, no matter where it is or if it is even connected to any other node, then the Post Event by event name will be working.

Here is an example 

node 1 is working , but node 2 is not (ignore the fact that the node 1 is not link). BUT if I call 1 somewhere in my blueprint, then 2 will work

Not sure if it is a bug or if I'm missing something

are you quite sure they match?

feel free to post both the name and event id here if you want me to double check for you.

Yes I'm sure they match. I add an image to my question to be easier to understand. PostEvent by event name is not working, but if I have a PostEvent by Ak Event somewhere in my blueprint, then it will work.
