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"

Moving the character in the direction he is facing

Im trying to move my character in the direction he is facing vs the direction the camera is facing. I used a tick/gate so i can rotate the character freely right or left by holding down 'A' and/or 'D' vs the build in 3rd person run right or left so i want the camera to still follow him but i want him to move in the direction he is facing not the direction the camera is facing so the camera follows and not leads

You can add movement input based on your character GetActorForwardVector instead of using anything based on the Controller.

It should look like this (assuming this is the Character Blueprint Graph)
