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"

EDIT: I looked at your the blueprints and I figured out your problem. Very simple math logic. Your setting your health variable to damage received - health :P. Flip them around and your set.

It's a little difficult to figure out what is going wrong with the limited information you've given us. When your debugging something like this it helps to have a healthy amount of output that you can always delete later.

Print out the value of damage taken whenever damage is received. Also make a print node after the apply damage node to see if it's getting called more than once. This is what I suspect is going wrong.

I blame any typos on my phone :).

That was it! Thanks, must have gotten my maths wrong again :) If you don't mind. I still need help having it update my health bar. I got my health bar to display. Now I just need it to update with the current health. This is the blueprints I believe are working: alt text alt text I think the problem may be here: alt text
