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"

Third person top-down fixed camera control issue

Hey all,

I've seen a thread before with this exact issue, but I'm having trouble finding it.

This is my game, the camera mostly works fine and looks like this: https://twitter.com/kontzalexa/status/845650059798745088

I'm using a third person default camera for my game, modified a little bit to keep the camera fixed while following the character. Super simple, top down WASD setup. However, I'm running into an issue where sometimes the movement is diagonal for some reason.

Example, i want her to run south when i hold S, but instead she runs southwest or something like that.

I did this camera a few months ago when I was BRAND new to Unreal (I'm focused on the art side, the game part is new for me), and while I'm a little more experienced now I can't figure this out, or remember how i even set this one up unfortunately. Here is a screenshot of my blueprint, please let me know if you need any other information.

I managed to fix this eventually, but it's been so long that I don't remember how. I can check my camera BP and post that again when I'm home from work-- if I forget and you still need this, just shoot me another comment!

PLEASE. I have had many ideas for a solution to a similar problem and none of them worked so far.

A bit anticlimactic, but it looks like i just deleted everything in the ThirdPersonCharacter BP besides this:
