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"

Is it safe calling function from AnimNotify?

I mean if you are building a MULTIPLAYER can you call a function from an animation using animnotify like deal damage, etc.. I know it`s possible, but how safe is it? (fear the cheaters..)

Thanks everyone! :)

I would not deal damage with AnimNotify... so many better ways to do it. Call a function yes but then do other logic to detect the hit. An I would probebly do a RepNotify with a varible or something.

i agree it is possible though not advisable for something like damage. though for a sword slash particle system using a anim notify could be beneficial. also speaking of logic to detect a hit, ive used animnotitify to do just that by enabling weapon collision in one case and by beginning a line trace on a timer in another.
