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"

To fix your streaming pool warning you can use "r.Streaming.PoolSize 1000" or set to a value until the error message stops showing.

If your camera doesn't need to utilise much of the spring arm functionality (and a lot of it is best used in 3D games), you could opt to detach your camera component from your player and manually SetWorldLocation for the camera, on tick, using X as the location of of the player, Y and Z as the location of the camera.

If you want the camera to also follow the character upward, but not to a point where it will see outside of the level, you can use the character's height value, and clamp it, (or map to range clamped) to whatever limits look good for your game, and use this as the height value for the SetWorldLocation.
