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"

Like i said in the title when i press F in game it turns the light on and off but only plays one of the animations so i'm taking a guess that the bool is not changing, Thanks for any help in advance :D

Do a -> toString -> Print String on the bool and you will see what the bool's value is. I'd wager it's something with the animation. Post your results and we'll find out!

Heh this is much easier than that... you have the bool defaulted to False, so it will always execute to FALSE on the branch unless you are setting that bool somewhere else to TRUE, which I doubt you are. What you could do, since it's a toggle, is use a toggle node ;) It's called FlipFlop.

If this has resolved your issue, please upvote and mark as the answer so we can close this out properly. Good luck!

Next time you have a question be sure to show the blueprint and properties. It helps helpers out a ton :)
