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"

camera position is off in level viewport

hi, could someone please help with the issue below? The camera is set up correct in the Thirdperson BP but looks all messed up in the level viewport. I can adjust the camera but shouldn't the camera in the level viewport 'speak' directly to the BP? I am applying damage with line trace and I'm afraid that this issue could be why it isn't working properly when the trace channel is set to 'camera'? alt text

Make sure the camera you want to follow the player is a child of your CameraBoom. This will keep the camera at the end of the boom, rather than with the player.
