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"

Pinball game : Morph Target Issue

So, this is final bug on my Pinball Game. As you can see in the image below, the letter cards are not aligned properly. I want them to stay aligned and stay slightly infront of the yellow band. I want all of them to be perfectly horizontally aligned just like "K".

I am attaching all the necessary blueprints (Kindly check the reply section as well, it contains additional pictures on blueprinting)

Hi,

I probably don't quite get the problem - why don't you just attach each of the letters to the item you want them to be aligned to? It's much easier than trying to position each individual piece via blueprint.

If you do need to position them via blueprint, it looks like you are not discounting the depth of the letters as each seems to be offset by that amount.

Best, Alessandro

Reference : Img 1 (the one with Pinball Table and the actual asset)

As you can see the asset has two poles, both of them are meshes. And connecting Yellow band is also mesh. And so are the Letter Cards.

What I wanted to achieve : Upon putting a string, the string will generate the number of letter cards. Eg - String = "UNREAL" Cards Generated = [U] [N] [R] [E] [A] [L]

And the position of the cards should be inside the two poles, slightly infront of the yellow band.

I Have not examined your Blueprints to see how you present the cards so this might not help. There is a function "FindClosestPointOnLine" which might help you. You create an invisible line and then give it a position and it will give you a point on the line which is closest to the position you gave it.
