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"

New axis of FirstPersonCharacter not working

I'm trying to add a new control axis to handle vertical movement while floating in zero gravity. Pressing "R" should make the player go upwards, and pressing "F" should make the player go downwards. I'm pretty sure I've done everything right, but the new buttons aren't doing anything in the test game.

My .h file has this:

     /** Handle directional thrust */
     void MoveForward(float Val);
     void MoveRight(float Val);
     void MoveUp(float Val);

My .cpp file has this:

 void ATestProjectCharacter::SetupPlayerInputComponent(class UInputComponent* InputComponent)
     InputComponent->BindAxis("MoveForward", this, &ATestProjectCharacter::MoveForward);
     InputComponent->BindAxis("MoveRight", this, &ATestProjectCharacter::MoveRight);
     InputComponent->BindAxis("MoveUp", this, &ATestProjectCharacter::MoveUp);
     InputComponent->BindAxis("Turn", this, &APawn::AddControllerYawInput);
     InputComponent->BindAxis("TurnRate", this, &ATestProjectCharacter::TurnAtRate);
     InputComponent->BindAxis("LookUp", this, &APawn::AddControllerPitchInput);
     InputComponent->BindAxis("LookUpRate", this, &ATestProjectCharacter::LookUpAtRate);
 void ATestProjectCharacter::MoveForward(float Value)
     if (Value != 0.0f)
         AddMovementInput(GetActorForwardVector(), Value);
 void ATestProjectCharacter::MoveRight(float Value)
     if (Value != 0.0f)
         AddMovementInput(GetActorRightVector(), Value);
 void ATestProjectCharacter::MoveUp(float Value)
     if (Value != 0.0f) 
         AddMovementInput(GetActorUpVector(), Value);

And my project settings has this:

input settings

(Don't worry I'm not trying to use a controller)

So... obviously I'm missing something here, but I can't think of what.

@ArdentStoic Can you include the entire header file for reference?
