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"

Firing a projectile

Can anyone tell me how to fire a projectile using a 3rd person template in mobile. I tried using top down shooter tutorial as a reference but could not get it to work.

Do you have all the blueprints and projectile mesh setup and It's just not firing?

First thing that stands out is you're trying to use "fire" with a reference you don't need. You're casting to a blueprint that you're already in. Get rid of all the nodes after delay (and begin play, and the gate), and then simply bring up "fire".

Keybind -> fire

Secondly, your vector math may be wrong, I can't say for sure. Try spawning the projectile in a fixed position, e.g +20 along the x axis from the player. Just to know for sure it's spawning.

It worked ! I know I'm probably getting this all wrong but I cant seem to get my projectile to shoot out of my rifle mesh now.
