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"

How to walk in UE4.

I simply dont know how to walk in my level. I press "Play" and just float freely. My question is, how or what do i need to do in order to be able to walk like in the UE4 tutorials by Zach on the UE Youtube channel. When he presses "Play" he is able to walk around but when i do, i simply float. Any help? :[

If you setup your character properly as Zach does in the tutorial then you probably forgot to set it as default pawn in World Settings.

Btw, you automatically get email notifications if someone posts an answer or comment to your question.

He sets up the character in one of the videos?! I must have skipped over it?!?!?!?!? if you can...i would be so very thankful as to tell me exactly which video he does it in. Video tutoring helps me alot. lastly, im also new to asking for help online. I didnt really think that asking online would help. Thanks! hope to hear back with some details :[

Apparently you werent referring to any specific tutorial. For a third person character follow this tutorial series: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZlv_N0_O1ga0IoRrpI4xkX4qmCrhGu56

For FPS character, still watch those tutorials(especially number 5, 13 and 14), and create a new character BP in content browser. Set the controls as shown in those videos and then set this character as your default pawn in world settings.

Thank you so much, i actually was refering to a first person tutorial. Still, thank you so much for helping me and will check out the entire playlist of videos you linked me to. hopefully i am able to just set up a simple first person camera so i can walk through anything i create. Thanky you a miilion times. If i do have any problems refering back to making a first person camera or walking in ue4, i will post back. Again, Thank you.

No problem. You can also migrate an fps character from an fps project but it still wont work automatically(you'll need to setup the controls, which is explained in the tutorials) and the info you'll get from the tutorials will be useful in the long run anyway.

there IS no default character when starting a new map. which is why its so much trouble. thought, i think Jacky is onto something, hopefully i hear back from that person and all goes well. Thanky you for helping as well. maybe this will spark something later on.
