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"

[Basic]WASD Movement based off look direction

Hi, I am very new to UE4 and am trying to make a very basic first person game. I was trying to follow this tutorial but I noticed that when I try to move my character the WASD moves based off the axis only, not the mouse/look direction.

I have no clue what I am doing, and looking at other explanations on here haven't been very clear to me. Can someone please explain like I'm 5? ![alt text][2]

Hey, did you try to just use "GetForwardVector" and "GetRightVector" of your FirstPersonCamera for the WorldDirection of your AddMovementInput Node? <3

And looking at the tutorial, I would remove the Springarm, you can also take a look the FirstPerson Template that you can create when making a new project. *However, you can continue with a Springarm, but then make sure you go under the Springarm Details Panel and check "Use Pawn Control Rotation" (use the search function on top if you can't find it)
