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"

Issue with character collision


I've been working on a project for about 2 months now and have a good feel of the Unreal engine. Currently, though, I have run into a bit of an issue. I have got all of my network replication working for my characters and their input, animations, etc...

However, when I run a dedicated server and have two characters in the level and a moving character collides with a stationary one, it will send the stationary character flying out of the map (or sometimes will just cause that character to endlessly run in the direction he is facing). After the character flies out of the map, an invisible obstacle is placed in the area where he was standing and cannot be passed through by any other character. What's more confusing, is that on the stationary characters screen - he is still in the same position and has not moved.

I would appreciate any help on this, it's driving me nuts!

I figured it out on my own. The sword and shield I had attached to the character was colliding with the characters skeletal mesh and knocking it loose from the capsule because the character "attempted" to stand on those meshes. Removing collision from both the sword and shield fixed the issue!
