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"

Playing a skeletal mesh animation for a specific actor

I'm not sure how to tackle this the right way, but I'm trying to get the player character to play an animation (a silly victory dance) when they reach the end goal. But I want this animation to only play with this specific actor when they collide.

I've been looking through tutorials that are similar but they never seem to work for what I'm trying to do and going through them all has left me a little muddled - sorry if I forget to show anything.

The event graph blueprint for the actor shows up with no compile errors and it doesn't work. Ballman is the player character. alt textalt text The main problem is referencing I think: I've tried casting to communicate between the two blueprints (?) and whether I try making the collision part of the character or the actor or even part of the level, I can't seem to get them to reference the each other properly.

Where do I go from here?

Well I solved it... Just needed the "other actor" node from the triggerbox to be connected (to the changed) "cast to character"'s blue node: object. I'm stoopid.
