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 - How to blend multiple montages?

Hi guys, a problem I haven't been able to solve and is driving me mad...

My scenario is thus: My character can equip weapons in either hand - left clicking controls the left, and right clicking the right. Holding down left click will cause the character to hold his weapon up, and releasing will make him swing the weapon. So far, so good.

My setup is very complicated so far and looks like this: alt text That's the anim graph. The idea is that LeftSwing and RightSwing are montages that play the animations of swinging the arm. The montages look like this:

alt text A "Primed" section that gets used when the player holds the button down, a "Used" section for when they release, and some notifications. The right one is the same.

Now, I'm having IMMENSE difficulty in getting these to work together. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

I will share my current event graph, for what it's worth. It takes variables manipulated in the C++ to organise the animations.

I know it's a bit scary (split into 2 parts cos of size): alt text alt text

So "played left"/"played right" and the "primed" bools are set in C++ on button presses, and the "animation names" are set similarly.

Any tips on how to make this work or even suggesting a more elegant system would be GREATLY appreciated - I am in need of some help!!!!!!

Worth mentioning that they (kind of) work independently, but break as soon as you try and use at the same time - after which, neither will work until restarting the game.

I know this is an old question, but from what I've read, apparently multiple montages cannot be played on one character at the same time. It's not supported for some reason.
