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"

Hi call95,

Have you changed the Game Mode at all? To change it, you could either change it in the World Settings or by going to Edit -> Project Settings -> Map and Modes -> Default Game Mode. Be sure that the Player Controller you're using is set as the default and it should possess it automatically.

Hope this helps, if not, please feel free to let me know.

Ok so it could be either that you are actually starting in simulation mode instead of play in viewport, or you just need to double check you game mode settings.

My guess is that you are simulating which can be changed like so:

For the game mode, make sure that the game mode is being set in the world settings like so:

Also that in the game mode blueprint you have set the player pawn and the player controller (if you made a controller and didn't do all your logic in your pawn):
