I’m trying to setup a 2D multiplayer game and have run into a problem. My goal was to have two players spawn at specific Player Starts (Player 1 on the left, Player 2 on the right) facing each other at the start of the game. But nearly every time I start the game, one or both players will spawn as expected, then immediately reverse their rotation.
I adapted the respawn logic from the MultiplayerShootout sample project to get the players spawning at specific Player Starts. If I don’t use that logic, the players always spawn with the proper rotation, but obviously not at the preferred locations every time.
I am having a similar issue myself. I even made a thread for it a few hours ago. I think it has something to do with the way you are spawned into the world from a Player Start. I hope there is a way to fix this.
Please avoid bumping threads more than once a week.
As for the problem, if memory serves, the rotation of the player controller is only set to the player start if the pawn has a player controller when it first spawns.
Since you’re spawning the pawn THEN possessing it with a player controller, the player controllers rotation is probably overriding the pawns.
Try forcing the player controllers rotation as well.
It looks like InputAxis events throw some values on initializing, so i solved this problem pretty simple:
Just put some boolean variable before “add controller yaw/pitch” and set it true after little delay on begin play, all works fine!
