Mannequin only shows when i play the default third person template but when it is in preview mode it only shows the player start widget instead of showing mannequin,i am unable to catch up blueprint tutorials on youtube because of this issue! version Ue 5.0.1
The tutorial’s :
You can see that on yours screen you have selected PlayerStart actor instead of Third PersonCharacter, like in tutorial. I assume you have simply forgot to place it on a level.
You can just search for the third person character in your content browser and place it in the level. But even then, you need to set it to possess, otherwise you’ll have two players.
The default level is just spawning a player, because that’s how it works…
Hey i tried importing third person character from the content library but it stays still, only the default character is playable which only shows up when i press the play button otherwise it doesn’t appear, as a newbie I don’t know how to fix it, i would be very thankful if you could show me how to do it
Much of Unreal Engine is designed for multiplayer games. In this case, think of a Player Start actor as a spawn point, which spawns the character specified in your GameMode blueprint. If you do not require this feature, then simply drag your character blueprint into the level and set Auto Possess Player to 0 in the Details panel.
The player you put in the level. Select it and, in the details, set possess to player 0.
