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"

Creating a Damaging Flame-thrower

How do I create a Damaging Flamethrower? I can't find any good tutorials, (in fact barely any) that does so.

I have created a particle system that mimics a Flamethrower, however I wish to use this as a weapon effect once firing an action button, and then damages the enemy per instance/hit/animation/time (ect), I have a basic Damage Interface to receive such inputs but how do I link the action button, to firing the animation, and prolonging the animation to further resulting in damage to an enemy?

I am guessing firing an invisible line trace in the shape of a cone that once hits the enemy can do this,but it still doesn't fur fill my question and answer.

Spawn hitspheres alongside. On Hit -> Apply Damage. There is also the OnParticleCollide Event for CPU Particles. Simple as that.
