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"

Melee Combat System Documentation?

Hey everyone,

I'm currently developing a game project with a friend of mine for a 3rd person hack n' slash game. It seems like there are very few examples of melee combat. I'm looking to make a combat system just like Kingdoms of Amalur. This video shows the combat system - http://youtu.be/EEdc3NWq2io?t=2m3s

The only things I have found are -

This thread - https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/24180/how-do-i-add-a-simple-melee-attack-animation-to-my.html

A thread about fortnite - https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/43365/fortnite-melee-combat-system.html

Fist fighting from animation montages - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zQrNQtfNOHc∈dex=89&list=PLZlv_N0_O1gaCL2XjKluO7N2Pmmw9pvhE

I'm not wanting fist fighting, but I'm looking for sword fighting with maybe a small combo system that takes energy.

Are there any professional tutorials somewhere that go in-depth about a melee combat system? Anything from UE3 that would work with UE4?

President's dev blog goes pretty deep into building his melee combat game.

Specifically, the Alice in Tokyo Wonderland Dev Diary - Combo 1 through 4 video goes into using Montages to fire different attacks within your melee combo.
