First Person Character missing graphics?!?

Hello Everyone,

I am new to this gaming engine, and I have been messing around with the first person blueprint capabilities. I have created a very basic room so far. However, when i test play the game. The view of my first person character is missing in several areas. And only the top half of my shadow is visible. I have tried restarted the engine, and it didn’t solve my problem. Does anyone know what I can do to fix this?

Thank you for your help!

This is because the way the first person mesh is set up … it is literally only a pair of arms and a weapon. Open your player blue print and click on the viewport tab, you will see what I mean.

Your options from there are to add your own body and look at the “only owner see” and owner no see options". Look at the difference between the “First Person Example” and the “Third Person Example” to get an understanding of what is possible.

In Re-Spawn Tournament I use a combination of First Person Arms and Third Person Body in order to achieve the desired results. The Body is set to “Owner No See” and casts a shadow where as the Arms are set to “Owner No See” and does not cast a shadow.

So this is what my player blueprint looks like, pay attention to the highlighted meshes on the left, namely arms and mesh (body).

This is the shadow and visibility settings for the mesh (body).

This is the shadow and visibility settings for the arms.

This is what it looks like in game. The player can only see their arms and not their body, but the body casts a shadow and the arms don’t.

This is what you would see when looking at another player. You only see their body and not their arms.

I hope this helps to clear things up a little. Good luck with your project. 8-}
