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"

Why is Xbox One Controller not working?

I just bought an Xbox One Controller for the development of my game. When I plug it in Windows 10 picks it up and the controller rumbles. When I am in UE4 I can cycle trough the viewports with the controller, but when I play the game the player pawn doesn't move at all. I have the inputs all correctly set for gamepad keys and everything. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Product Version: UE 4.15

I had a similar problem, and I checked the following to get things going.

  • I had recently plugged my Xbox One controller in, so possibly it didnt detect right away

  • Can you move around in the editor view (not playing the game) with the controller? It should fly around like WASD

  • When you start the game, have you clicked on the window to focus it so it takes input?

  • Try running the game outside of the editor and see what happens.

  • Open the blueprint while playing your game which listens for controller input and check to see if connections are firing.

  • You may also have an event which consumes the input and isn't sharing with other event calls

Hope that helps :)
