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"

First Person Hands not following the Player

So i replaced the blue hands from the FP Blueprint with some of my own, assigned the animations again and the textures.

Now when i look up in the game, the camera does look up but the hands are not. its like aiming in the air but the hands are not following the corshair. only when i move left and right they follow but no up or down.

The Green line is the direction my hands are pointing but the red line is where i am looking and therefore the direction, they should point into alt text alt text Any ideas on how to fix that?

I'm new to the engine so forgive me if I'm wrong.

In your components for you character blueprint, you want to attach the hands to the camera. The camera being the "Parent" and the "Hands" being the child.

This should make it so the hands will follow wherever the camera goes. How it should be :)
