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"

Player perspective camera disappears when compiling

I was trying to change the static mesh for the player model when this issue occurred. I opened the MyCharacter class blueprint and went into the Components section. I clicked on the Mesh component and imported the static mesh I was using. Upon trying to delete the default character model (I am using the First Person template so I had two floating arms with a gun), this caused a strange issue with the camera component.

When I try to compile the blueprint, the camera disappears. The camera component is still present in the components list, and when I change the value of any variable for the camera, it re-appears. Compiling the blueprint will only make the camera disappear again. The Compile button does display the error sign indicating that there was an issue compiling, and I would check the compile log but I don't know where it is.

Trying to launch the game brings up an error message saying that a blueprint didn't compile properly, and playing the game anyway spawns the new character model but with a default camera position (embedded in his torso) and I can't move.

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide me.
