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"

From your character, you can GetCapsuleComponent() and use one of the rotation functions (AddLocalRotation, AddRelativeRotation, AddWorldRotation). :)

Thank you for your comment :), now i have a little problem.

In the c++ class that attached to player, i added this :


But now it rotates everything in the world, except the player itself.

If it appears to rotate everything in the world, then your camera is attached to the component being rotated. In your camera component, under "Transform" click the drop-down for "Rotation" and change it to "Absolute Rotation", that may fix your issue.
