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"

Hi I want to check if a sound 2d(a dialogue) is playing(but the sound itself will come as a variable from another blueprint

For this you should use SpawnDialogue2D instead of PlayDialogue2D and uncheck AutoDestroy.

thank you. Could you explain or tell me where to find information regarding the spawn dialogue 2d? not sure what the whole context part of it is(it seems like its always giving me false in the branching and i suspect the context part of it is at fault)

ALSO, for the audio duration, how can i fire an event when it is not playing?(because right now this is all firing from a custom event, and it is not working on the tick, so im unsure how i can tell it to use the false branch afterwards so it stops the animation or does something else alt text
