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"

How to implement movement action independent of character rotation, dependent on world space movement.

I'm making a top-down game where the character moves with wasd and looks 360 degrees with mouse location independent of movement. I'm trying to implement a dash with launch character that dashes in the direction the player is moving. The dash currently 'works' but only when the character is facing up and it's xy axis matches the world's xy axis.

Example:

when facing up and pressing 'd' the character moves right and dashes right

when facing down and pressing 'd' the character moves right and dashes left, causing a slight retrograde before continuing rightward movement.

I would like the dash to ignore the character's position and only dash in the direction the character is currently moving.

Here's my blueprint, the top section is the mouse rotation look:

Update: I figured it out. Just disconnected Get ForwardVector and Get RightVector from Make Rotator and it works fine.
