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"

Play a sequence with the game paused

Hi!

I want to play a sequence as an intro to a boss fight, but locking the enemies and players in place, so that the state of the game is reflected on the sequence, but when I use the pause game node, the sequence is also paused, is there any way to achieve this using BPs or C++?? Or will I have to alter the AI so it does not move while the sequence is playing??

Thanks in advance,

Sxicion

We have resolved this on our own way:

  • First we set the time dilation for every actor that is not the sequence player to 0

  • Then we pause all the timers we use (you can create an interface implemented by all the actors with timers and pause all the timers from the actors iterating or modifying the timermanager code adding some functions)

  • And finally, we play the sequence, the enemies appear to be frozen and if the players are near the area where the sequence is played, the appear on it.

I hope anyone with the same problem, find this helpful
