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 do I create a new character with a different pawn

Does anyone know how I could create a new character in a split screen game but with a different pawn to the first character?

Hey,

Well, if by "pawn" you mean a different mesh, you could create 2 child blueprints of your character blueprint, and just change the mesh for each of them. And then spawn one for the first player and the second one for the second player. That way they'll use the same movement, input and animation mechanics, but on different meshes.

However, if you need the second player to have a completely different character, with different mechanics, you will probably need to create a new character blueprint and then just assign that one to the second player.

Hope this helps. :)

Thanks but how do you spawn one for the first player and a different one for the second player

Well, if you placed both in your world, you can click each of them and then select which player auto-possesses which character. I.E.: alt text
