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 to make a Wave/Round Based Enemy Spawner?

Howdy,

I am currently working on a wave/round based spawner, with not much success. All attempts of making this with the help of video based tutorials have ended in failure.

I need to know how to make a new wave/round start when the previous waves/rounds enemies are all defeated, also if possible, they would mine showing a screenshot of the blueprint used to make a successful wave/round spawner.

To those who are willing to help me, I thank you in advance.

Kind regards, DracoPlayer

P.S. If it will help to know of the Video Tutorials I used to try to resolve this issue, I will leave the links below:

Well for a wave based spawner i would use a TIMER. I would set up a timer by event, that is looping. set the loop time to whatever i want to round to last for. save the timer reference as a variable. from that variable you could pause, reset, invalidate the timer. in order to immediately spawn next wave (in case of wave clearing or something) just run the event that the timer points to. You could use this functionalit yin a custom BP places in map or level blueprint directly. Hope that helps.
