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"

How to stop retraction/snap back of spring arm when colliding with camera blocking volume

I'm currently working on a game that uses a top-down perspective.

In 2D Zelda games, I’ve observed how the camera follows the character, but stops as he approaches the edges of the dungeon and the room exits.

I'm trying to achieve the same behavior by placing camera blocking volumes around the level and enabling the collision test on the spring arm component. Technically everything works, but the spring arm retracts, or snaps back so hard, I wish I could just disable it once it collides with the volume. Essentially I want the camera to stop in place when colliding and not move inwards because of the spring arm component.

I'm not sure how to go about this - any help is greatly appreciated!
