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"

Making a simple Play/Stop sound event

Hello! I am new to UE4 and I am trying to add a sound effect of heavy breathing when the stamina value is 20 or lower. As I understand, it all works as it should until the value actually gets to 20 and the sound should be played, but it doesn't. I don't quite catch where I am making a mistake. Can anybody help me with this trouble, please?alt text

You don't have your set sound node hooked up to anything.

Can you explain it more detailed? Like, how I can fix it or something?

He means to try this alt text

When you see an empty white arrow on a blueprint node, it means that it is a function that needs to be executed. If you have your white line going through the function it will be called, in this instance you're not executing the "Set Sound" node

Ok, I got it now. I've tried to hook it up as you show, but still there's no sound at all. As I understand, the problem is that there's nothing to be played, thought the path to the node is highlighted during the moment when it should play the sound.alt text

Use play sound attached or play sound at location instead.

How did you fix it

I know this is an old thread but this is how I achieved the same thing by making a low health sound. alt text

Mate, how'd you get those wires to turn like that? The overlapping spaghetti wires have been getting on my nerves and I'd love to learn how you did that.

Hey Loqz, What you would do is double click on the wire and a node will be placed on the wire. From there just select the node and place them where you need them to bend the wires :)
