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"

(Noob) How do I use delta time to make my actor move up and down?

I am trying to get an object (a banana) to move up and down constantly throughout the duration of the game. This is my current blueprint. Can someone tell me why it doesn't work and how to fix the issue? Currently it's just having a spasm on the spot while rotating. Thanks alt text

You could easily do this using the sequencer. Check out video #8 in the link below for an example of how to do this.

start by deleting the tick node.

begin play -> timeline -1 to 1 to -1 looping -> set actor location set the z value to the timeline value * 600.

or you could just use the 'interp to movement' component then you wouldn't need any nodes. or you could do this in the material graph with world position offset.
