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"

Player Controller transform?

Actually, this is about the base class AController.

Does it have its own position and rotation and applies it to the pawn/character (if enabled)? Or does it only apply the input/delta to them? I'm wondering, because I'd like to know what exactly happens when you look up or down with a character. The character-actor doesn't rotate, so what is it that's rotating on the pitch-axis?

If it's about looking up/down, I'd expect you're seeing the pitch of an attached camera changing.

Sure that's what I see. I'm just wondering if camera (or springarm) rotation is the first and only variable that changes when processing input, or if there are stored values inside the controller as well that are being referenced. But I guess I can just look it up in the source code later. I didn't think of that.
