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"

SHMUP - shoot when at 360/n degree rotation

I have a Shoot em Up project where I have Primary (front gun) and Secondary fire (left and right guns). I want to add a Tertiary fire mode where the ship rotates 360 degrees and every 45 degrees (1/8th of turn). The alpha float value that I get from a timeline is not precise because I think its frame time based, so the values cant be checked with just a modulus (% - symbol).

I tried to use a node called inRange that should return a boolean if the value is within the range. The problem I have is that the ship doesn't fire at the right moments and also fires too many times. The project is based on an ongoing YouTube tutorial series.

If anyone knows a solution to my problem, I would really appreciate it Thanks :)
