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"

How would I create a single death event that allows for any enemy to kill the player just by touching them?

As the question implies, I would like to have a single event that allows for a number of enemies to kill the player instead of just one. Synonymous to how in Mario games enemies such as Koopas, Goombas, and Piranha Plants can all kill Mario. I have no previous experience with applying damage.

So for applying damage there are some very handy nodes available. In your damage causer, ie your enemy, you can have a Apply damage node, and in your player character, you have a Event AnyDamage. I have attached 2 screenshots of a simple setup.

I have used event hit to trigger the damage, but you can trigger it however you like. If you want it when the enemy touches you, then use event hit, and in the actor details, ensure "generate hit events" is enabled under collision.

Thank you! This is exactly the kind of system I was hoping to implement!
