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"

Ok so here's the screenshot of the graph! Also, I forgot to set the timer to loop & the time to something like 0.2.

Thanks for the screenshot! But I have 1 problem, In 4.8 I can't find "Clear Timer by Handle" and "Set Timer by Event". I could only find "ClearTimer" , "ClearTImer_Delegate" , "Set Timer", "Set Timer_Delegate" any ideas what should I do?

Easiest solution would be to have some kind of running animation playing and use this method https://youtu.be/clWHpTtgTOw ... But if there's no mesh at all, here's how I would do it

  • You have boolean IsMoving

  • On tick, you check IsMoving and if is, check if velocity is over limit (so is actually moving). If both are true, do nothing.

  • If IsMoving is false, check the velocity again and if is actually moving, set IsMoving to true and add a looping timer that plays sound.

  • If IsMoving is true, but not actually moving, set it to false and clear the timer

Also for some effect, on the timer, I recommend using flip flop and each other sound has just a bit difference in pitch multiplier.

I think that should do it, cheers! :)

Well, instead of using tick, you could instead use an Anim Notify to play a sound at a specific point in the animation, the same techniques can be used for Particle Effects and custom events too. All you have to do is.

  1. Click on the animation you want to open up persona.

  2. Right click on the white bar with black stripes on when you want the notify to play. (There already should be a notify called play sound)

  3. Then just set the sound.

Here's what it should look like: alt text

Oh, didn't see the other answers. Whoops. I didn't know there wasn't a mesh :P

avatar image Sntfon100 Jun 04 '16 at 03:23 PM

My problem I should've mention that in the title or description, I'm going to change it now. Anyways thanks for the answer :D

avatar image D3ATH95 Jun 04 '16 at 05:11 PM

Well, instead of using tick, couldn't you start the timer whenever the movement key is pressed? And the play sound event then checks to see if it can play a sound there, if it can, play the sound, else don't play sound. Because the major issue I see here is that what if you are moving but falling? Footsteps will be heard even though you are in mid air.

avatar image Derzo Jun 04 '16 at 05:14 PM

You could be right. For the falling problem, when try to play the sound, add branch to check if IsFalling (Character Movement) is false.
