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"

Can we somehow make the camera of a character not follow the character?If so, then how?

I am a beginner and I want to know if it's possible to make the camera not follow the character. It's a simple top-down game which will focused on a specific area. This is a project which I have undertaken in order to make myself learn this engine.

Place the camera freely in the level and set the 'Auto Player Activation' to player 0. Meaning: first player. You wont need a BP for the camera. Make sure there is no camera on your actual player mesh.

That's how I did my game.
