Viewport Configuration

Hi I am working through the 2D Side Scroller with Blueprints and have hit a snag. When I click play the game switches to perspective view (I think). So my question is how do I run the game from the front view. I have tried, ‘Play Selected Viewport’ but it doesn’t work.

Can anyone help please.

open your character blueprint and select the camera component, now go to the details panel and change the Projection Mode to Orthographic

(Ortho Width changes how zoomed in or out the camera is)


Hi thanks for your reply. I haven’t added a character yet. I have now added a camera and figured it out. Many thanks.

Actually I am not happy with what I have. I notice that in the tutorial no matter which view the speaker switches to when he hits play it plays out the physics in that view?
