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"

Changing camera to not move?

Hey! So at the moment I'm working on a mega man type game. The camera follows you while so that you are in the center of the screen, but I was wondering if there was a way to get it to zoom out a bit and stop following you in the boss rooms. I wanted to use a collision box for this and I still think that is the way to go but I have no idea where to start for the programming. Anything helps! Thanks!

I think a good way for you to do that is, keeping the camera that is following the player, but then have another separate Camera Actor in your level (with the fixed perspective you want), and simply changing them with this node: http://api.unrealengine.com/INT/BlueprintAPI/Game/Player/SetViewTargetwithBlend/index.html

If you need any more help with this let me know!
