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"

Depends on what the rolling ball is doing

If it's just an optical thing and you are still using the CharacterMovementComponent to move just invert the thing, the ball becomes a child of the character and then spins relative to it, the character stays upright.

If the ball is your new movement controlling thing, you will need to either:

  • Set the character to be upright every frame

  • Or not attach the character to the ball but move it with the ball every frame.
