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"

Player Character using incorrect oriantaion.

Hey guys, so I decided to switch my default FPC to a TPC manually. Everything is working fine except one weird thing that I cannot figure out. The default orientation of the player character is different in the map than it is in the viewpoint. This is really weird. I have looked over the BP and I don't see anything that would manually orientate it differently. Like I said though this was originally a first person default game. Is there anything hidden away that would affect rotation?

Notice the blue arrow. The camera reoriantates facing in the correct direction however the mannequin does not. This leads to the camera facing sideways. Also WASD works in the correct direction according to the spawn, however with the mannequin facing the wrong way w causes you to move sideways. alt text

did you retarget any animations? I think by default the third person skeleton (Maybe its the first person one) is oriented 90 degrees the wrong way. In the animation blueprint you can use "Rotate Root Bone" to fix this
