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"

Change character collider


I'm working on a game using a player class deriving from the Character class. So i've the capsule component used by the mouvementComponent. As i'm already using the mouvement component, i'd like to keep it.

However i was wondering if the capsule component could be use only to move or jump and every other collisions would be done by the collider of the skeletal mesh (Hitbox or anything else) . Here is my problem, i didn't succeed to make the mesh collide with the ground (I'm using the mannequin from the demo project without changing anything)

 #include "GameFramework/Character.h"
 #include "../Source/Rapiere/PrimitiveComponent/PC_PlayerWeapon.h"
 #include "C_Player.generated.h"
 class RAPIERE_API AC_Player : public ACharacter
     UPROPERTY(EditAnywhere, BlueprintReadWrite, category=Gameplay)
     UAnimMontage* FireAnimation;
     bool fais1 = false;
     // Sets default values for this character's properties
     // Called when the game starts or when spawned
     virtual void BeginPlay() override;
     // Called every frame
     virtual void Tick(float DeltaSeconds) override;
     // Called to bind functionality to input
     virtual void SetupPlayerInputComponent(class UInputComponent* InputComponent) override;
     void StopJump();
     void StartJump();
     /**Represent the player's weapon and it's component*/
     UPROPERTY(EditAnywhere, Category = Weapon)
     UPC_PlayerWeapon* PC_Weapon;
     /**Set if the character is firing*/
     UPROPERTY(VisibleAnywhere, Category = AC_Player)
     bool BisFire = false;
     /**Main camera of the character*/
     UPROPERTY(EditAnywhere, Category = camera)
     UCameraComponent* FirstPersonCamera;
     UPROPERTY(VisibleAnywhere, Category = camera)
     float BaseTurnRate;
     UPROPERTY(VisibleAnywhere, Category = camera)
     float BaseLookupRate;
     /**Function called OnLeftClick Pressed to set BisFire to true*/
     void StartFire();
     /**Function called OnLeftClick Released to set BisFire to false*/
     void StopFire();
     /**Function called for zs axis*/
     void MoveForward(float value);
     /**Function called for qd axis*/
     void MoveLeftRight(float value);
     void TurnAtRate(float Rate);
     void LookUpAtRate(float Rate);

And here is the cpp file, i've let the constructor and the tick function to reduce the amont of code. Just ask me for more.

 #include "Rapiere.h"
 #include "C_Player.h"
 // Sets default values
     // Set this character to call Tick() every frame.  You can turn this off to improve performance if you don't need it.
     PrimaryActorTick.bCanEverTick = true;
     // Create a mesh component that will be used when being viewed from a '1st person' view (when controlling this pawn)
     BaseTurnRate = 45.f;
     //To do in the editor
     static ConstructorHelpers::FObjectFinder<USkeletalMesh> SkeletalMeshTower(TEXT("SkeletalMesh'/Game/Mannequin/Character/Mesh/SK_Mannequin.SK_Mannequin'"));
     if (SkeletalMeshTower.Object) {
     //Setup Mesh with mesh coming from Editor
         GetMesh()->bCastDynamicShadow = false;
         GetMesh()->CastShadow = false;
         //Setup Camera attaching it to head socket
         FirstPersonCamera = CreateDefaultSubobject<UCameraComponent>(TEXT("FPSCamera"));
         FirstPersonCamera->AttachToComponent(GetMesh(), FAttachmentTransformRules::KeepRelativeTransform,TEXT("sock_head"));
         FirstPersonCamera->bUsePawnControlRotation = true;
         //Setup weapon to hand Socket
         PC_Weapon = CreateDefaultSubobject<UPC_PlayerWeapon>(TEXT("Weapon"));
         PC_Weapon->AttachToComponent(GetMesh(), FAttachmentTransformRules::SnapToTargetIncludingScale,TEXT("sock_hand_r"));
     AutoPossessPlayer = EAutoReceiveInput::Player0;
     GetCharacterMovement()->AirControl = 1;
 // Called when the game starts or when spawned
 void AC_Player::BeginPlay()
 // Called every frame
 void AC_Player::Tick(float DeltaTime)
     if (BisFire&&!fais1)
         fais1 = true;

Here are the entire code of C_Player. But if you need more information about skeletalmesh or anything else to help me, don't hesitate. Thanks for your help
