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 can I fix this?

I downloaded some assets from the UE4 marketplace and added them to my third person example project. Now for some reason when i loaded one of my maps and pressed play, instead of having my third person character to control, I could fly around much like you do in the editor. I checked and all the initial third person folders are still there. This is probably a stupid question but I am new to this, so if anyone can help, i would appreciate it a lot! Thanks!

Thank you so much! I guess it was a stupid question after all!

It's a totally understandable stumbling point. :-)
