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 create a grappling hook (in 2D) similar to the ninja rope in Worms

Hello everyone!

I'm working on a project and in my group we want a grappling hook (or in this case) that behaves similar to the Ninja rope in Worms.

The players are going to move around in a 2D platforming enviroment and one of the ways to navigate in this enviroment (with the exception of jumping and moving to the left and right) is by using a grapple hook.

How we want the grappling hook to behave:

  • the Players can fire the grapple hook in any direction.

  • the Grapple Hook can't reach across the map, meaning it has a limited reach.

  • the Players can "reel in" or out with the grapple hook.

  • the Players should be able to swing with the grappling hook.

I have done some research beforehand and I have found tutorial about it on Unreals wiki page and I also found some questions about it on the answer hub but I don't feel like they answer my questions.

Will this be too difficult for me to do? What will the challenges be?

Thanks!

P.S. First time posting here, go easy on me please.
