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"

In your character class header, you have to create a variable of a type UPaperSpriteComponent* as shown below:

 UCLASS()
 class MYPROJECT_API AMyCharacter : public ACharacter
 {
   GENERATED_BODY()
   
   ...
 
   private:
   UPROPERTY(EditAnywhere)
   UPaperSpriteComponent* CharacterSprite;
 }

Then, in your constructor, you have to construct the component and attach it to your RootComponent.

 AMyCharacter::AMyCharacter()
 {
     // Set this pawn to call Tick() every frame.  You can turn this off to improve performance if you don't need it.
     PrimaryActorTick.bCanEverTick = true;
 
     CharacterSprite = CreateDefaultSubObject<UPaperSpriteComponent>(TEXT("CharacterSprite"));
     CharacterSprite->SetupAttachment(RootComponent);
 }

Now you should be able to spawn your character in editor and set the source sprite for it. Good luck!
