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"

Multi-Directional Realistic Sword Combat System?

Hi guys!

First things first, I'm a brand-new Unreal Engine beginner. I don't have any experience of any sort! I wanted to go in a particular direction for creating my first game... Just very simple, a Multi-Directional sword attack/block system much like this: https://youtu.be/zX9iMAzGUbY?t=2m10s and NOT like this https://youtu.be/AT5PlpAKo0I?t=4s

The combat must have more of a Mount and Blade feel rather than a Skyrim/Witcher feel, get it? XD

...so what I want to learn is how to detect the direction of movement of mouse, and trigger one of the 5 attack animations according to that direction? Same system for blocks, and the enemy also can attack/block from 5 directions. And there should be a realistic stagger if we score a hit (like the AI staggers to left when we hit him on right, staggers when we get him on the head etc.) Where should I start? Any pointers? What should I learn? And I'm thinking to make it as a Multiplayer for android, so swipe left is left attack, pinch in a particular direction is blocking, etc.

And BTW all the tutorials I've seen on the Internet till now focus on more like an Elder Scrolls style combat, with Magicka and all... I just want a realistic game with Health and Stamina!

PS I would prefer learning and working with Blueprints
