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"

Use of a timer without event

Hello all.

I wish to have a timer starting at some event, but I do not need to link it to any other sub-event. I actually just need the timer to know how fast the player react after the main event start. Since the editor tell me that's something is wrong about it, it makes me wonder if there is a better way to do so.

Try using Set Timer by Function and just make an empty function if you dont want an extra Event Node hanging around on your graph, cool.

On an alternative line of thinking you can use Get World Delta Seconds and check how much time has elapsed since you saved the value of Delta Seconds into a variable for checking.
