So I have a project. When 4.8 and 4.9 came out (I tried this on both) I went to my .uproject file (4.7), right click and choose, switch unreal version.
After I switch my version to either 4.8 or 4.9 , when I now press play only a movable camera spawns at my player start node. No character. Anyone else have this problem or have suggestions?
Thanks so much
There could be a variety of reasons that this happened, but go into your game mode and make sure that the player pawn default is correct, or go into Edit -> Project Settings -> Maps & Modes, and then make sure that that player pawn value is that of your player blueprint.
Any other suggestions if that did not work?
The solution from Jamendxman3 will work
Otherwise add your character bp to your level and press play -> then you shoul be abel to play the character
The problem was under world settings, I had an override somehow choosing a different game mode even though i was setting it correctly in Maps & Modes
