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"

How to get text to follow character?

Hi, so I followed the tutorial - https://youtu.be/_NCtcHXJPjg?list=PLZlv_N0_O1gaCL2XjKluO7N2Pmmw9pvhE Which allowed me to put some text in front of the light when the player enters the box trigger, however my question is, is it possible to get the text to follow the character so when they move around the light the text is always facing them? This is what I have so far. Thanks alt text

Facing them as in the camera? Or facing the pawn?

What's the difference? Isn't the camera in the pawn as in the player?

Here's an example for you. Create a blueprint from your TextRender actor and match it's Yaw with the player's (flipped, pointing toward the player).
