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 use audio component instance parameters?

I've created a Sound Manager component for my character BluePrint which holds an array of Sound Waves. When I tell the SM to play a particular clip (in this case weapon sounds) the BP's Audio Component stops the current clip playing before playing the new one.

How do I set up the AC to use multiple sound clips at the same time? I've noticed the "instance parameters" which also allows me to specify different clips to use, but how do I go about using them so I can play weapon fire, reloading and dry fire clips simultaneously?

Thanks in advance :)

Yep, that is what I should have done in the first place. But when you're working late at night and your brain power is running on fumes, you quickly resort to posting a question on the Answers website.

Thanks again.
