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"

Trying to get player direction relative to the camera

First I tried using a Dot Product between to Forward Vectors, but the results were only between 0 and 180 (when using ACosd) but also never negative. This wasn't useful because I need a full 360 degree value.

I tried using the Find Look at Rotation function, but unless I'm missing something, that doesn't seem to take into account the direction that both objects are actually facing...?

I need the direction the player is facing, and for what it's worth, I'm doing Camera relative controls, so I'm not planning on having the player face the direction that the Camera is pointing (Mario 64 style, not RE4 style controls).

Product Version: UE 4.9
