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"

Why are my 2 different attack animations not playing correctly?

Hi guys!

I have set up a character with two different attack animations now, but I am struggling to get both to play correctly. My animations are "converted" to animation montages and they both have separate slot names. When I debug, I can also see that the signals are passing through the appropriate nodes, both in the animation blueprint and the player blueprint, so right now I`m not really sure what I`m doing wrong.

Here is my anim graph, with a layered blend per bone node:

...And here is what I get when I try to play in the editor:


Any gurus out there that can help out?

The setup on your Layered Blend Per Node is what's causing one of your montages not to play in-game, The node has two incoming blend poses, each affecting the same bones (Spine2 and up), and each with a full blend weight. So, whatever is getting input to Blend Pose 0 is getting immediately clobbered by the input of BlendPose 1. So, when something plays on your LightningStrike slot, the 'Use cached pose' from Blend Pose 1 plays over it.

It seems that you could set this up in a much simpler way by eliminating the second slot and Blend Pose. Since both montages are meant to play on the same bones, you could have a single slot node that both montages share, like 'UpperBodyOnlySlot'.

Good luck!
