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"

Hey Tom,

Side Scroller Template is a 3D side scrolling game. The character is locked to a specific axis he's able to roam freely on. The 2D Side Scroller Template is created out of Paper 2D and you're also locked on a specific axis as well. However, all of the assets are 2D instead of 3D. Here is some additional information from the UE4 Documentation for Paper 2D.

You can also download 'Content Examples' from the 'Learn' tab and learn more about all the features that UE4 has to offer.
