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 use the FirstPersonCharacter BP as default player?


I started a new project yesterday, so I created a map and worked a bit on it. When I opened UE4 this morning and went into my map, I clicked on PLAY, and the blueprint FirstPersonCharacter wasn't used anymore: it was a weird flying character. I've tried to put the Blueprint on the map but it wasn't using it either.

How can I change this default player?

Thanks in advance! :)

Product Version: UE 4.12

I actually just found out that in Project Settings > Maps & Modes it wasn't set as FirstPersonGameMode.

But thank you!

Malo, if you don't need to support player respawn or multi-player, then the quick and dirty approach will work...

Add your FirstPersonCharacter to your map and then set its "Pawn > Auto Possess Player" value to "Player 0".
