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"

can't roll the player controller past 90 degrees

Hi, I have a project where i am attempting to roll the player character over 180 degrees and I am having a bit of trouble figuring out how to make the camera behave - to that end:

I wanted to roll the player controller 180 degrees but it seems that i can only roll the controller 89.9 degrees and i wondered if it was clamped intentionally or there is a setting somewhere that i haven't found.

Below is a screenshot of a simple test case i threw together to investigate the problem.

Regardless, thank you so much for any help!

You could use the Add Controller Pitch/Yaw. Like it is done in the third-person Example.

Have you tried to change the Pawn Use Controller Rotation settings?

I poked at it a bit - if my camera isnt using the control rotation it seems i can fix this specific issue, but by doing so it seems i have to sacrifice features that id rather keep (much of the niceties that comes with a spring arm, for example.)
