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"

UE 4.8.3: I had the same problem today. I was able to fix it by setting bShouldPerformFullTickWhenPaused = true in the APlayerController ( in addition to bTickEvenWhenPaused of the camera ). This flag is checked in the UWorld::Tick and then PlayerController->UpdateCameraManager(..) updates the view as expected.

Can I know which file you used for this fix? Can't seem to find it from my part, maybe cause I'm not from programming background.

Thank you. You just saved my life. I was digging into engine source trying to figure out why my camera was not moving while paused, even though everything was updating. I can confirm that is still an issue in 4.15.

This worked for me too. I'm on 4.17

Ok so I set bShouldPerformFullTickWhenPaused = true in PlayerController.cpp, bTickEvenWhenPaused = true in the camera, but after that I got lost and couldn't figure out what to do and the camera view obviously still doesn't update. I feel like it's a very easy and quick fix but I can't wrap my head around it for the life of me. Could you write a very small step-by-step guide for ignoramuses like me?

Hi TJ, is there any update about this?

Hi John,

Our resources have been allocated else where and the JIRA was set to a lower priority so it will not be fixed at this time. If you know of any other users reporting this issue, please post links here and maybe we can get some more traction on the issue.

I need this resolved as well. (currently on 4.11, waiting on a plugin. If this is solved in 4.12, disregard.)

This is still an issue in 4.15. Any updates on JIRA UE-17286?

Is this still an issue? I am trying to also change a camera view while the game is paused in menu and camera refuses to change view. This is on 4.18!

avatar image SteveDM May 28 '19 at 05:28 PM

We're now up to 4.22 and still the same issue.
