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"

My Character - Mesh Wont Appear

Hi Guys,

Have a very serious issue with the My Character BP, I can't see my mesh at all, despite it being visible if I drop an instance of it into the level.

It just will not appear. It's literally the same My Character BP from the 1st Person Template put with my own mesh and animation. The mesh is fine as I have tried it in a blank project and it works fine there, just will not work in this one.

Any help ASAP would be much appreciated.

Thanks, Willalt text

Also too add to this:

  • The project setting is set to use this BP on start-up

  • Projectiles fire and other non-solid components show-up

  • The Max export for the mesh is fine, as I have said, I tried this in a blank project it works fine.

So the question is, where in the project has it gone wrong?

Is the mesh those arms and gun from the screenshot?

If you check the Rendering tab in Details, is the mesh Visible, and not Hidden in Game? alt text

Turns out it was related to the visibility after all, but not in the location you mentioned.

Essentially I had a menu that appeared, hides the player charcter from the screen. I must have left it ticked in the level blueprint, permantly hiding the player all together.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction! :)
