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"

Animation Blueprint is Glitched?

I have no idea what's causing the problem, so let me just explain everything I did:

In the third person template's default animation blueprint, I went to the "JumpStart to JumpLoop" location rule, which originally looked like this: alt text

As I was playing around with the editor, (I have watched tutorials on the subject,) I deleted that first node in the image above, the one called "ThirdPersonJump_Start Asset Time Remaining (ratio)". But later, I wanted to put that node back, but I couldn't find it anywhere! How come?

Instead I found another node, which appears to be the same thing but with a different look: alt text (Is this the same node or not?)

But now the animation looks bad! And very inconsistent too. Sometimes the jump start anim plays repeatedly over and over, even while on ground, sometimes the mesh will rapidly rotate side to side, sometimes it plays all choppy, I just don't get it.

I tried making a new third person template project to see if I could recreate the problem, but to no success. The thing about the disappearing node still happened, but the animation still plays smoothly.

So that means the problem is either a glitch, or I accidentally changed some other setting in the editor without realizing it. Any idea what that could've been? I can't see any difference between the two blueprints.

The glitchy animation was caused by the jump start animation being set to loop. :/ I had deleted that node and replaced it, which apparently sets it to loop by default. The anim inconsistency is do to the jump having controllable height.

I'm new to anim blueprints as you can tell. So sorry about that... ^^
