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 move skeleton bones in game?

Hello Guys!

So my question is can you move skeleton bones while playing in first person?

For example: I want to move skeletons right hand a little bit to the left each time I press "Q" and to the right for - "E"

I want this for kind of "advanced" iron sights aiming system for more "real" feel, any other suggestions are also welcome.

Thank you so much in advance.

I can think of a few solutions. I'm not sure what you mean by "advanced" but if I'm understanding correctly either of these options should work well.

  1. Just simple play an animation montage section when you press the corresponding buttons.

  2. You can use the 'Transform (Modify) Bone' node in your animation blueprint and drive the translation of whatever bones you want. (You might need to attach your character hands to the weapon with the FABRIK node.)

You might also what to checkout using virtual bones, as sockets will not work with option 2.
