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 Input Not Working in Standalone

Dear everyone, In my game, I have a custom player controller and custom player character. Both seem to work perfectly fine in every Play Mode except standalone. I have put print strings in multiple areas to see where code is running and where it isn't. When I go to standalone mode, the print string I have in the Player Controller doesnt seem to go through, which made me think somehow the Player Controller isnt being connected somehow but when going into the level blueprint and printing which Player Controller it is using, it is printing the correct one. Any help with this would be appreciated. Like I had stated before, it all works when not in standalone, but when in standalone, all controls wont work.

Product Version: UE 4.18

Hello Ipecac,

I just experienced some weirdness with this myself in the ThirdPerson Template project. What ended up fixing it for me was creating a new GameMode and assigning my custom Player Controller. (Player Controller was assigned in other GM, but inexplicably did not process input)

Setting "Auto Receive input" to Player 0 might be something else to try.

Hope that helps!

We were also working in the Third Person Template and I believe that worked. We ended up creating a new player controller and character and that seemed to fix the issue.

Glad to hear it! I'd be curious to dig a little bit deeper on this (I vaguely remembering having this same problem years ago) Let me know if you find any more info.
