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 do I merge characters?

Hello, I downloaded two templates to start a project. One comes with a gamemode and a character that spawns when the game begins. The other template contains better physics/animations for a character, and Id like to use the character from the second template in the game from the first one. Can I merge the 2 characters so the game still works but with the new physics/model/animations for the first template (game)? Thanks

Product Version: UE 4.21

merging is not possible, however there may be a way to get it to work though im not sure id recommend it. basically you could try making the second character a child of the first. this is done in the class settings if memory serves. there will be a option that says parent class and you just change that.

personally i would try to make the changes to the first character. from what you mentioned it seems like its mainly things associated with the skeletal mesh that need to be changed in which case it isnt too difficult. just open the first character and select the mesh i nthe components tab, then in the details panel change the mesh and the anim bp to the new one. there may be other options that need changing as well but thats really all i can tell you based on the information provided.
