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"

Check the gamemode settings. Since you deleted your character, there is a good chance it also got deleted from your gamemode as the default character, since blueprints cannot hold values that don't exist.

If you start a game without any default character setup of your own, the game will default back to a first person character and chances are good that character's camera got stuck somewhere that makes it seem you got a black screen.
