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"

Capsule Collider causes Physics body to fly off

Hi there, I am following a tutorial on how to get the ragdoll deaths, which is fine as I have set up the physics asset and so on. However there is a point in the tutorial that requires the actors capsule collider have its location set to one of the bones on death by using a set location node in the event tick event. As soon as I do this however the physics body seems to fly off as if the capsule collider is forcing it away.

I have tried several options and had a look around to see if I could find any solutions but to no avail. The options I have tried have been experimenting with different settings of what is having its location set, such as the actor itself and the capsule. I have also changed what bone they get set to, and I have triple checked to make sure that pawns and physics bodies don't collide with each other.

also here is the video tutorial I am following https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dAOZi7rVuFA

It is strange because in the tutorial it just works, and I have tried following exactly but still nothing.

Here is an example of the blueprints I am currently using... alt text

I appreciate the help, thanks.
