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"

Need help changing pawn's forward direction to match camera's forward direction

I've looked all around for a solution to this, but with no luck... I'm working with the ball template project and I want to change the ball's forward direction to match the direction my camera is facing. Right now my camera is on a boom arm attached to the ball and is rotated relative to the ball. I'm not really sure how to go about doing this. Any help would be greatly appreciated! alt text

So, I've implemented your solution and I can now rotate the ball to face the cameras forward direction but the movement of the ball does not match the direction that the camera is facing. Any ideas and how to fix my movement?
