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"

Third Person Character erroneously jumps off moving platform

Hi Epic people (in every sense of the word),

I have been observing some strange behavior when jumping directly up from a moving platform. It is similar to the issue reported -here-, but additionally to the character sliding when landing (which I fixed using the steps outlined in the answer), the character will sometimes either be slung forward, or not move at the same speed as the platform and get left behind. I have recorded a short -video- to demonstrate. My "Impart Base Velocity" settings are as pictured.-See Image-. If anybody happens to know a workaround, or a solution to this issue. I'd be very grateful for any information.

Best, Nik.

I wanted to make sure it wasn't something caused by changes I'd made to the default Third Person Character so I recreated the problem in a vanilla C++ third person template scene, and though it didn't seem to happen as often (possibly because of lack of air control), it still happened, in both directions. -Video-
