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"

Making character rotate with wasd

I have seen a similar thread before and someone did answer the question, but it didn't work for me. I am trying to make a top down game and want to make my character rotate in the direction it is moving. All the tutorials use the mouse for rotation but I want to do that exclusively with the wasd keys and I want the camera to stay still without rotating along the character.

In character class turn off "Use Controller Rotation Yaw", if its checked. Then turn on "Orient Rotation to Movement".

I am sorry for not being specific enough, but I need the camera to stop rotating along the character as well. Question updated.

to make camera at specific angle/distance, you need to set it every tick.

For example you can create function and add it tick event. In this function you will get camera or spring arm and set desired World Rotation.
