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"

Directional Dodging In Top Down Look At Mouse Controls

In my game, when in top down perspective, the mouse determines the character's rotation, but the movement input is world direction based. So W always goes UP in the world, S goes Down, A goes Left, D goes Right, all independent of your rotation.

Problem I'm running into while implementing a dodge mechanic now is that I can't wrap my head around the math for how to tell it which dodge montage to play based on rotation and input direction. So if I'm aimed UP in the world, pressing W should play dodge forward. alt text

But if I'm aimed to the LEFT in the world, pressing W should play dodge RIGHT (So It's still trying to dodge towards UP in the world.)

Basically I need the math to decide which montage to play based on which one would try to dodge in the INPUT direction. Feel like it has something to do with Dot Product or something but like I said, can't wrap my head around it!
