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"

Problem with tracing from screen to world

Hello friends

I've made my prototype game in Blueprints but I want to make it C++ now and so far everything is good but there's a problem with tracing from screen to world. Here's my code:

Solution #1:

 void ALeviathanPlayerController::RotateToTarget()
     APawn* thePawn = GetControlledPawn();
     if (thePawn)
         if (IsLocalPlayerController())
             FVector2D mousePosition = FVector2D(0, 0);
             GetMousePosition(mousePosition.X, mousePosition.Y);
             FVector worldLocation = GetCharacter()->GetActorLocation();
             FVector targetLocation, targetDirection;
             DeprojectScreenPositionToWorld(mousePosition.X, mousePosition.Y, targetLocation, targetDirection);
             DrawDebugLine(GetWorld(), targetLocation, targetDirection, FColor::Red);
             targetDirection *= 10000;
             targetDirection += targetLocation;
             FVector Intersection = FMath::LinePlaneIntersection(targetLocation, targetDirection, thePawn->GetActorLocation(), FVector(0, 0, 1));
             FRotator Rotation = FRotationMatrix::MakeFromX(Intersection).Rotator();

That didn't work, so I tried another solution:

Solution #2:

     FHitResult Hit;
     GetHitResultUnderCursor(ECC_Camera, false, Hit);
     FRotator Rot = FRotationMatrix::MakeFromX(Hit.ImpactPoint).Rotator();

It rotates the character, but as the player walks it start rotating in the wrong direction. I don't know how to fix it. Any ideas?
