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 do I get the current playback position (secs or ms) of a playing sound cue?

Surely there must be a way.

you need to use an audio component to play the sound then use the OnAudioPlaybackPercent delegate function to get the playing USoundWave and the playback percent.

Keep in mind since sound cues can play many sound waves, this will be called back for each playing sound and return their playback percent.

There isn't a way to get the logical playback time of a sound cue (i.e. accumulating delay notes, etc) right now.

That worked really well - thank you! I can do beat-matching now.

The "OnAudioPlaybackPercent" event that I create doesn't seem to execute. I'm binding it to the Audio Component that I create with "CreateSound2D" but I can't see it activating. My sound cue is non-looping.

You have to call Play function after binding event.
