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"

URGENT:Assign character Mesh and Animation C++

I have created a new C++ class character. However, I am not really sure how to attach a Mesh to it and an animation. Can someone please give me a detailed guide with the needed commands on how to do that using the Third person static mesh and animation?

Thanks in advance.

Take a look at the various example projects that ship with unreal. They show how to assign meshes, use sockets, use animations etc.

It would be more useful if you point out a certain example. The ThirdpersonCharacter example I can only find it in Blueprints. i.e. I can't seem to be able to find a C++ equivalent to what the ThirdPersonCharacter Blueprint Event graph does.

I don't have the samples installed at the moment, but I'm reasonably sure that if you go to make a 'New project' you'll have a 'Blueprint' and 'C++' tab. Both should have the same sample projects so pick the C++ tab, select the ThirdPersonCharacter project and load it up.
