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"

Moving the Camera Component does not change the viewport

I am trying to move the camera to get a better view in my game, but whatever change I make I dont see it when I play the game. The camera does not move and the viewport does not change, I feel like my missing something important. I press compile and save after I move the camera component but when I press play I dont see any changes? Im using the Side Scroller Template.

Here is my camera and no matter where i move it, if i hit compile and save I dont see changes in game. alt text

Hi JakeOfSpades,

The default camera for the side scroller template in 4.3 is now Orthographic. With that camera setting you only need to change the Ortho Width to adjust the camera distance. With the perspective camera (like you have set), it should adjust by just dragging it like you are doing.

Try deleting and recreating the camera to see if that helps.

I fixed it, I selected the Pawn Class as the parent class but I had some code that handled the capsule component and the character I just inherited that and it worked fine!
