Oh god I am trying to find solutions in the web but i cannot find anything in there so Im asking here. I am trying to rotate my character in the character tool, I noticed that in the above section I can see three
icons that transforms, rotates and scales the object, but when clicking them, theyre not working, basically they do nothing when clicking on them and trying to apply to my char.

I used Third person template but my character is backwards when playing.

I think the solution is to rotate the mesh in a modeling program but im too lazy, Cryengine should have an option to solve this but this engine is giving me headaches i cant find solution.

How can I rotate character? I think it could be possibly to rotate it in the character tool like mentioned above...

Hi ReyneerLeond,

Rotating and reorienting characters in the engine is not possible, you will need to do this in your DCC tool of choice.

We have a recent tutorial that covers this with Mixamo base characters if you are interested:
