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"

Collision doesn't push player off the stage

I'm making a small platformer, and I set up two rectangles moving back and forth using matinee. They move the way I want them to, but they don't push my character off the stage, just pass through him. I would like to have them push him off and when he dies, he respawns at the start of the level. alt text

This is just a guess from the picture, but it looks like you're using Matinee to move the meshes. I don't think this will actually simulate physics or collisions. Instead you should create a blueprint that causes the actor to move, and make sure you have the collision presets for both your player and the moving actor set up so they block each other.

Hi, you might have figured this out by now.

I think your problem is that your sliding walls are BSP.

Try making static meshes from them, and enable collision =)

I'm sorry but that was the first thing I change before I went on here. They're both Static meshes, even the floor too. They just clip through the player and keep him in place, but don't push him off
