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 possess another character?

Hey Gang,

So I made a duplicate of the "MyCharacter" blueprint. What I'm aiming to do is press a button and then have control over the OTHER character (the duplicate character) I've placed in my level. How do I do this? What is the proper Blueprint set-up? I need to enable / disable some inputs within these blueprints as well?

Hey VagrantProfile,

You can download Content Examples from our Marketplace. Simply go to the Learn tab and it'll be nested under 'Engine Feature Samples'. Once you have Content Examples open within the Editor, go to the Maps folder and double-click on the 'Animation' map.

The section that you'll likely want to take a close look at is: 1.10 - Playable Character Animation Blueprint

This is an example of pressing the green button and actually possessing the Owen character as a playable character. Here is the documentation from this specific section: Setting up a Character

Within Content Examples, you're able to actually take a look at how they set up the blueprints for each section. So if you click on Owen that's sitting at 1.10 section in the Animation map, you'll be able to review the blueprint used. You can always choose the green button and look at that blueprint as well.

Hopefully this information will help you achieve the goal you're aiming for. Good luck! :)
