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"

Max Walk Speed Variable Hidden for Blueprint 3rd Person Controller

Hey Folks

I am trying to implement a sprint function. I have looked everywhere and it seems extremely straight forward. I have got the character controller placed into the blueprint and have drawn the tick out but when I search for set max walk speed I can't for the life of me find it.

It's as if the variable is hidden! Made a new project and still no dice.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

I don't have Unreal in front of me right now but I believe what you need to do is get the characters movement first. So from the character controller node you should be able to pull out a character movement node then you'll be able to find the get/set max walk speed function.
