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"

Wheels move sidewards (x-axis) instead of moving forward

Hi Guys,

Currently I am developing a Wheelchair Simulator in Unreal Engine. I've developed the wheelchair in Maya and gave it some joints as can be seen it this tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9yrHqMBynlw

Even though I've done this a couple of times before, my wheelchair just doesn't seem to work properly. Instead of moving forward (when using W), it's moving sideways (on the X-axis). I've made an animation blueprint, and it seems that the wheels are using Pitch instead of Roll. I am not sure, but this might be due to the fact that UE4 imported the model (from Maya) wrong, and its sideways moving is in fact 'forward moving'. However, I am not sure, because steering the wheels works just fine.

My problem can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oMb6n3YaDKQ&feature=youtu.be

Any help would be lovely!

Kind regards.
