    As far as I remember I didn't make any specific crazy logic for walking left/right. It's all in input binding in project settings. Maybe try assign different button for it.
    Hmm very odd then. I tried assigning different buttons but it definitely seems tied to the blueprints, every other button mapped works properly for both players. Left/right only works for player 1 via the first controller or mouse/keyboard.

    I would love to add local multiplayer. I managed to get a second player in the game, but the one thing that doesn't work is moving player 2's character left and right with the left stick. All of the other inputs for that player (including shooting) works for it. I'm pretty puzzled, and searching through the blueprints has been a bit overwhelming to figure out. May I please have some insight? Thanks again!

    It looks like package is also missing config files and you guys have errors even with project file, so I uploaded them - https://1drv.ms/u/s!ArQ2o4Lr9uLgghTIhUWYEWOccaM8

    Just copy them in your config folder. This way you can work already on 4.18. If you guys still have a issues, please let me know. Version 4.18 has almost no changes. I've only enabled APEX destruction plugin, so basicly you can download for version 4.17 of Unreal and then covert it.
    Thanks - all seems to be working fine now.

    Hi, I already posted on the marketplace but figured this was a better place to post updates.

    I used this project for the first time in 4.18 and used your link to get the project file. I went via the 'create new project' option in the library.

    'Out of the box' in 4.18 none of the key bindings were defined, and only the mouse aiming worked (and only up and down in depth shooting mode, though I haven't yet figured out if that's just a setting). Subsequently, I manually defined the key bindings, and they now (mostly) work. It may be that I missed an obvious trick (I just loaded the levels individually and played them directly rather than going through any game interface - not that I've found how to do that yet) but maybe the 4.18 build isn't quite right.

    There were also some non-game breaking compile errors (e.g. in BP-bullet) which I fixed by deleting the relevant bit.

    Having played around for a while, I also find that the buttons and checkpoints aren't triggering. The player and the objects are both set to generate overlap events, but those events don't seem to get called. I don't know if something changed with collisions in 4.18 (I've seen one thread on that already) or I just have things set up wrong for some reason.

    I probably have enough working to be able to start developing my specific game, but I thought I'd flag that up in case it's of use...

    Thanks.
    Ok, seems that the trigger components are set up differently for the checkpoint blueprint at least - fix seems to be to set all collision responses of the trigger component to Overlap (some/all were set to Ignore before).

    (The collision test logic also seems a little different between e.g. checkpoint BP and the cover BP, FYI)

    Edit: regarding the Button Panel, this may or may not be the correct fix, but in the OnComponentBeginOverlap(Trigger Box) test logic, I changed the test for component = character mesh to testing component = capsule component (and likewise for EndOverlap). Again, I have no idea if this is just a 4.18 thing or if my setup is somehow borked.

    BP_Camera_change needed (I think) collision set to overlap and also the above change to the OnComponentBeginOverlap test logic (and EndOverlap etc).

    BP_Vault_trigger already had the OnComponentBeginOverlap change mentioned above. I changed the collision to overlap but it didn't seem to work yet.

    Possibly other things need updating also...

    ---------- UE 4.18 Update ----------

    Side Scroller Shooter Kit is now compatible with UE 4.18, but for some reason Epic didn't include project file (.uproject) to package.
    I've already send e-mail about this.
    For now anyone working on 4.18 - you can download alone project file from here - https://1drv.ms/u/s!ArQ2o4Lr9uLgghGf-qAMt8Xf9-KD - and project should work fine.

    Sorry for inconvenience

    so the character runs with his hands down and gets back to aiming position as soon as you crouch..
    Thanks in advance for help
    You have to make same blend space like for running, just copy IdleRun blend space and replace there correct animation.

    Is there any setting to disable his speed increase after the jump? Setting sprint speed and sprint fly speed to 0 doesn't affect this behavior..
    There is small issue that is already fixed in 4.18 - In character BP look for Set Max Walk Speed - you will find there that couple instances where speed should be taken
    from variable, it's actually set to 600, that's why it resets speed. Pin there Max Walk Speed variable. Sorry for the issue.

    Keeping in mind that I'm very new to Unreal and to the blueprints, Is there an easy way that I can disable aiming entirely? I would like the character to run forward/backward/crouch with his hands down, instead of in the aiming position.
    Please if you could instruct me to the solution ELI5(Explain like I'm 5) as I'm a complete beginner, I'd be very grateful

    P.S. Please let me know if I'm not clear in my question. thanks
