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"

lots of games trigger a moment of invincibility when enemies or players get hit, to make sure they don't take multiple hits from the same attack. to do this, you could put a gate node right in front of the event Hit, which goes to a sequence that closes the gate, then goes to a delay, which opens the gate after .2 seconds.

the gate should start open, so uncheck start closed.

also, instead of doing this on EventHit, it should probably be done on EventAnyDamage or EventPointDamage. the projectile can get other actor it overlapped or hit, and ApplyPointDamage.

Thanks for responding, I tried the below I think I may have miss interpenetrated due to my lack of knowledge. Could you tell me what I have done wrong as now the enemy doesn't take any damage at all. Sorry to be at such a novice level Im trying to get better. I really want to get this working to im very grateful for the help.
