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"

8 directional movement with prerendered sprites and game mode settings for p&c

Hi! I want to start studying Unreal by making a simple point and click adventure with Paper2D, just like in the old times (Sanitarium, Broken Sword, Monkey Island, etc.). First of all I want to allow player to move only in 8 directions and lock the rotation angles between. So discrete 45 degree movement. And Flipbooks must swap: for Down movement - FB1, for DownLef - FB2, for DownRight - FB2 mirrored and so on. How can this be done in Blueprint?

And I wasn't able to figure out what exactly are GameMode class, Player Controller class, Player State class and others similar yet and how to properly set them for traditional point and click game. Maybe you could give me some ideas where to look about it?

Thank you!

Product Version: UE 4.18
