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 change air control with C++

Hello I am making a first person character class from scratch so I can learn the engine better. I am trying to change the air control of the character, but I can't seem to change it. First I found out that I can change the air control with CharacterMovement->AirControl but I am told by VS that it's private and I cannot access it. So I try to store it as a variable by doing UCharacterMovment* ucmc = GetCharacterMovement();' and then changing it by doing ucmc->AirControl`, but I am now told that "pointer to incomplete class type is not allowed" Please help!

Product Version: UE 4.18

"pointer to incomplete class type is not allowed" means you need to include the class up top:

 #include "GameFramework/CharacterMovementComponent.h"

AirControl is a public parameter also. so this is enough: (do it in the character constructor)

 GetCharacterMovement()->AirControl = 1.0f; 

AirControl expects a value from 0.0f to 1.0f.
