    Need help following Unreal's 3rd Person Game with Blueprints Tutorial on Youtube.

    Hi, I couldn't find a help section in the forums, so please forgive me if this is posted in the wrong place. I am a complete beginner to UE4, and so I'm starting out by following along with youtube tutorials.

    I am currently on the 14th video of 22. I have just finished the creation of a character blueprint that handles player controls (keyboard and mouse). I have followed to the letter, and even gone back and re-watched the previous videos.

    My problem is that I can't get my controls to work properly, my camera movement via mouse does not work, and I can only move forward with the up arrow key, yet movement with WASD is all janky. The only idea I have that could be causing the issue is that I'm following a tutorial based on UE v4.8, and my UE as of writing is 4.10.2, i have noticed small changes to nodes and such in blueprint, and have used common sense to select the correct nodes that have been updated (the yaw and roll nodes have moved places in the break rotator and make rotator tabs, for example).

    I have also double checked my input settings in the project settings tab, and everything is as it should be. Any help is greatly appreciated, it's so infuriating hitting a roadblock that completely stops progress!


    Try not breaking the rotation.


      If arrow keys work, and wasd doesnt, and they are both mapped to "move forward/back" then its probably a mistake in how you setup inputs seeing as how they share the same code.
