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"

Character spawn with blueprint

Before I start this question I want to say that I am a UE4 newbie so please dont judge me too much.

Hello everyone, I am trying to make a game and have inplemented basic character movement. I have droped down a Blueprint of my player character with a Camera attached with a Spring arm. But here comes the problem, when I press on Play it spawnes a new player character which I do control. How to I make it so that I can control the Character that I placed down as a blueprint?

Thanks everyone for your time, I do appreciate it a lot!

Go to Class Defaults section in your character BP and set Auto Possess Player to Player 0.

you can also do this by selecting the character in the level then changing the auto posses in the details panel. this is helpful if you are using the same character for your player and the enemy and only want to affect one.
