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"

Having animtrail on static mesh when attached to a pawn?

I have a pawn with an attached sword, and that static mesh sword has two sockets: Effect_start, and Effect_end.

I wish to attach a trail to the sword's two sockets, but since the sword attack animation of the player drives these animation events, I can't select the two sockets on the sword from inside of the the pawn's attack animation animations.

What would be a better way of achieving this?

Hey haxxer i found a solution! i added the sword in to a blueprint with the trail emmiter. i then added that blueprint into my character blueprint as a component. in the weapon blueprint i have it casting to the player to check for a variable that i made to see if the animation i want is playing, and based of that the weapon BP can decide if it needs to show or hide the particle. it actually makes it easier than the way we wanted to do this!
