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"

Topdown shooter, aiming problems

Hi. I'm trying to do a topdown shooter with WASD movement and mouse aim. I have it set up so the character is always aiming at the mouse, and this works fine when standing still. But when moving around there are like deadzones at the opposite direction of movement. And if aiming in direction of movement, the aim kind of locks in place. Also, when strafing, the aim hops to the side a little bit. I have also set up a laser sight which makes this issue even more jarring.

In the pictures I am holding down the A key (move left) while trying to aim at the pillar to the right. I guess this has to do with the "set actor rotation"? Since I actually don't want the whole character to move, just the upper body. I followed a video tutorial for a third person template in which we set up blendspaces and aimoffsets but I don't know how to properly implement them to this control scheme.
