Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

How to add impulse to a bone without making it crazy?


In my game, my main character has a crossbow that is used to shoot ennemies. When the enemy's health is lower or equal 0, the last bow add a impulse to the character at the bone it hits to make the enemy fly away (the enemy is then in ragdoll mode). However, when I add too much impulse, the bones go crazy like on the photo :

Is there a solution to counter this? I really love that impulse, I really want keep this velocity. I just want the bones to not go crazy.

Here's my blueprint : alt text

I recommend you to look into how to set up how to set up the physical asset for AI character, what going crazy it the bone collision might overlap each other , or you can lock the joint do not let them break when apply force,...

I think you got a point. I need your advice. I haven't done the physics assets, it's a person of my team at school that made that. But at first seen, it seems there is too much collisions, and several collisions are overlaping others. If it's the case, I'll tell him the problem .alt text
