Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Screen size and camera / physics

•Dependant on screen size, the pawn / character will drop through the floor •In editor dependant on screen size, the camera will appear closer or further away from the actor / character

Version 4.5.1, easiest way to re-produce is use the third party template with world composition. Cook the scene and start the game full screen to re-produce the physics issue. It seems to relate to load order and it could be that in full screen mode terrain is taking longer to load than the actor is.

In editor (Camera positions), it's simpler.. Play the game in a windowed mode and play the game in immersive mode using the third person template and world composition.

Hi ShadowKindGames,

I haven't been able to reproduce the character falling through the floor. I am using the 3rd Person Template with World Composition. I have the Persistent Level and a second level with the geometry duplicated, creating one larger level that steams out at 500 units. Are you doing anything differently? Using landscapes maybe?

As for the second issue with the camera, what you are seeing is not the camera moving closer to the player but the aspect ratio changing from your Viewport Size (general square) to the size of your Full-screen Monitor (rectangle). If you notice the width of the image doesn't change, just the top and bottom are cropped away.

I can send you the build if that will help? Or the project, in the build camera position remains relative as you say it just chops off. In PIE the vector position moves..

If you would like to send me a link so I can download a copy of your project, that would be fine. Just send it over a private message on the Forums.

Hi,

Falling through ground was a bug with level streaming on game startup. In some cases not all streaming levels were fully loaded before player spawn. So player was falling down. This was fixed fro 4.6 https://github.com/EpicGames/UnrealEngine/commit/8b26b3562c24fb746572900949a96f961a30bd04
