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"

Giving actor, location from player.

I am trying to "shadow" the player in the -1100z. I made it work with a CameraActor. But with the actor i can't. Help much appreciated. The problem is not in the z value thing, i know that, but i can't get it to update the position at all. alt text alt text

The problem is that it won't update the location. (I know that there is some excessive things, and that the z value thing looks a little messy, but that is not the problem.)

Did you try to move "Default Scene Root" ?

Tried it, but it didn't work.

I think there is a problem with the "default scene root".

Can you try this?

  1. Click on ADD COMPONENT

  2. Add a new Scene

  3. Move the new scene to make it ROOT.

Then, try again to move the sprite or the scene (as Sertan mentions).

I find out that most of the problems on things that doesn´t move properly are Scene related, so this might help. Let me know.
