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"

Paper 2d rendering depth

I am beginning a 2D RPG and I am having trouble getting the player pawn to appear how I want it to. One of the more well known games that has the view style I am trying to achieve is Pokemon. For example the player moves horizontally in the X axis and vertically in the Z axis with the camera pointing straight down. What I am trying to make happen is for the player to be rendered completely on top of an object if the Z value of the player is lower than the object and for the player to be rendered behind the object if they player has a higher Z value giving the appearance of standing in front of or behind the object. I have messed around with the translucency sorting in project settings but cannot seem to get it to work.

Product Version: UE 4.10
