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"

The description for the Blueprint First Person template says "The camera can also be dynamically switched to a third person view", see https://www.dropbox.com/s/g204vyhte2e0ygo/Screenshot%202014-04-13%2010.04.19.png

What is the input or console command for this?

I am having the same problem, did you solve it?

I haven't found the answer yet. I haven't been looking much since however. Waiting for a pro to confirm either way.

Hello,

What version of the editor are you running? We have since updated this text as it had misinformation as that template no longer supports a toggle to third person. There are several tutorials on how to set this up though including one I posted on the forums here:

Take a look,

Its the version I downloaded 2 days ago, 4.1.1 The template says "allows you to swap 1st to 3rd person etc." Thanks anyway, yesterday I found an excellent tutorial on how to do it on youtube and it now works great.

In our latest internal build, this text has been altered and will be updated in a future release. I'm glad you were able to find a suitable solution though!
