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"

Event Dispatcher or Variable on anim BP?

Hi there, I was wondering what is the best practice to use when dealing with the event graph on anim bps to perform actions.

I generally have a bunch of branches after a sequence node that I check "if bool, then execute this"... But I was wondering if binding to event dispatchers is a better option (performance). For example, when the character uses a skill, I could have a boolean variable "Using skill X" and check it in a branch node, or Call an event on a skill dispatcher that I could bind to a custom event inside my Anim Blueprint that triggers the skill animation.

Does having less branches on a tick helps performance-wise? Do these dispatchers affect in anyway networking? (Known bugs or something like that)

Thanks for the time!
