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"

Is there a node where an actor moves left or right?

Is there a node that will let me know when a player moves left or right (not look right or left but move) if so, how? Is there a Boolean for it? Help is appreciated. Thanks!

Well if you have left/right bound to input buttons (maybe a and d) you can bind an event to when those get pressed.

How would you do that?

So when you tell your player to move left/right, they have to press a key for that to happen. There is a node that gets called when you press those keys, and you use that to tell the player what to do when those keys are pressed. Here is an article all about custom events in blueprints: https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-us/Engine/Blueprints/UserGuide/Events/Custom
