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 Can I Create a Unified Camera for Local Co-op

I am creating a fighting game and I would like to make a smash brothers style camera, where all players are contained inside the view and the one camera simply zooma out or in to contain all of the players. I don't need the smash brothers dynamic where the camera has a limit to how far it can zoom out, I just for now want a unified camera so I don't have to do split screen for local Co-Op

I have an idea how to do this. Someone mentioned in a semi-related thread that it would basically be getting the player positions and finding the midpoint between them, but I'm rather new to unreal engine and so I don't know how that would be accomplished in blueprints. Any help would be incredibly appreciated.

I wrote a tutorial about that some time ago. You can find it here:

I hope that is what you are looking for.

Thank you that's perfext. I've literally been looking for weeks. I don't know how your tutorial didn't come up. Should have found it right away.
