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"

BP Character Orientation

I am trying to make a point and click adventure but I can't seem to get the flipbook component orientation in my character BP to work as expected. I want him to face either right or left (y axis, I think). But in my character BP the add local rotation node doesn't work so well. And I cant fire events with inputs in my character bp, they only work in the controller bp. And sending a dispatch call from my controller to my character doesn't work. It seems so simple but I just can't get it to work properly.

I was using get velocity and comparing it to 0 to set which direction to face. But like I was saying the add local rotation node doesn't work well for that as it just keeps adding rather then setting it. I tried using the Use Controller Yaw in the character default tab but that also didn't work so well.

I got it to work properly. I can't believe it took me so long to get it right, it seemed like a simple concept. Anyways here is an image in case anyone runs into similar problems. I'm working from a top down view which is maybe why I was having so many issues. I also changed my Character BP to Paper2dCharacter BP
