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"

Projectile Collision Not Triggering Animation

Hey All,

I have a problem that is hopefully an easy fix... I have a feeling it may have something to do with the collisions. So here it is:

I have created a gun with bullets that shoot out of it. These bullets are made from the capsule component and consist of a static mesh (capsule) and a projectile movement component. The bullets shoot out fine (see video below).

I have a fox that has an event where upon collision with the bullet, the fox is supposed to play its death animation. The problem is, whenever my bullets hit the fox, the fox gets bumped. I can see that the bullet has hit the fox because the fox moves slightly (see video). My problem is, when the bullet hits the fox, it does not trigger the death animation.

Does anybody know what could be causing this? Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!
