Character is created automatically.

Hello buddies,

I am a beginner of Unreal Engine. I created a level with the components as below,

A character is created automatically when running, Why? It’s confusing…

And the character can be controlled with keyboard.

In the world settings, check the game mode. There’s an option “Default Pawn”, it’s a pawn the game will create automatically. Set it “none” if you don’t want a pawn to be created automatically.

Alternatively, put the pawn you want to control into the scene, and check “Auto Posses”.

Hi DjSt3rios,

Thank you very much! I found the option “Default Pawn Class”, but it is disabled in Unreal Editor. Could I modify it in DefaultEngine.ini manually? And what is the key name?
Thanks again! (:

Many thanks! It works for me. :smiley:
