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"

How do i make my minimap follow the player

Hi there, I am a student studying games design, and right now we're working on Unreal, so it is all quite new. Up to now I've created a quite simplistic 2D level, with moving platforms etc. I was planning to add a Minimap, and followed a Youtube video [By thefrog] on how to do so. The minimap is there and is appearing fine although the video then ends and doesn't explain how to make the Minimap follow the player as the player moves through the level.

Can anyone explain, help or show me how to make the Minimap follow the player as they move through the level? My level is quite large and the minimap only focus's on one section of the game, which is pretty much useless to me as you can only see my character moving when it moves through that one section that the camera is focusing on.

Here is the Video that I followed.

(Keep in mind this is a 2D Platform level i am creating, so i need the minimap to follow the player across the whole level)

Thanks for the help
