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"

Movement in relation to camera [Resolved]

I'm currently using the rolling game template, and have changed the camera so that I can move it around my ball. this works fine but the player movement isn't in relation to the view from the player. I assume that i need to change that the rotation of the ball is in relation to the view. would be a BIG help if someone know how to deal with this problem :)

This is how my whole Blueprint looks (to see wich category i choose) alt text

And this is the "Problem Zone" i think

Thanks for Help :)

Hey Janbertus,

You already identified the correct problem zone. :) In order to get movement relative to the camera, you need to use the right and forward vector of your controller (/camera). I would recommend going through the official third person blueprint tutorials since they go over a lot of stuff you might need for your project.

Below is a screenshot of how you can set it up - I hope it helps!
