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"

Make sure of these things:

-The camera component (and spring arm) and their relationship with the character as below (it should be by default if the blueprint is based on Character, not Actor)

-You've set the mouse inputs to affect the controller's Yaw and Pitch.

-Your issue might be in setting the Orient Rotation to Movement, so check it.

alt text

-Don't forget to disable the "Use Controller Rotation Yaw" for the Character itself. This is usually the issue with the new comers ;)

Anyways, best practice if you're new to the engine, is just open a pure template, and keep browsing all it's content, and try to adjust things, change value, and see what is the difference in behavior, this way you can learn faster, and more efficient.
