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"

top down shooter camera trouble

Hi everyone! I'm new to Unreal Engine and I was trying to create a top down shooter. I'm working in the unreal editor and I've put my character in there, which it's just a triangle from the shapes folder provided by Unreal.

Compile - save. Go back to my main scene.

Preview game, and you can see what my camera is looking at. It's looking at the triangle on the right. But the actual character is on the left. I'm not even sure why there's two triangles; there's only supposed to be one. I didn't duplicate anything...I've even looked in my layers panel and there's one of everything. What am I doing wrong? Any help is appreciated!

I'm quite new and just happened to be passing by so I might not know much but... Perhaps try putting down a "Player Start" from the menu on the left rather than putting in the character itself? If this does not work make sure the character is selected in Edit>Project Settings>Maps and Modes>Selected Gamemode>Default Pawn Class
