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"

Rotating Pawn and PlayerController breaks looking around.

I'm making a flight game and every time the pawn and/or controller is rotated enough (-90 to face down in world space), looking around does weird things. Moving the mouse in any direction makes the camera rotate in random(I know it's not random, but seems that way) directions. Anyone successfully rotate the pawn and controller and get the camera rotation to work properly with it?

sounds like gimbal lock. Euler rotations (yaw, pitch, roll) always have that problem, and the solution has always been to use quaternions or change the order of matrix multiplication. too bad blueprint doesn't have quaternions or matricies, so you are stuck with Euler Rotators.

try using a Combine Rotators node, it does some quaternion magic to get around gimbal lock.
