Condition if Character State == or !=

Maximilian PS 2 months ago in Game Creator updated 2 months ago 4

Hello there,

I need to check if my Character state is different from the default one. (I'm talking about the animation)
in particular, this things is needed 'cause when he draw/wield a weapon, he have to assume a position and when he sheath the weapon, he have to change state and also run some actions.

Also, because of many different States, i need to use != from default instead of == 
About that, from time to time I fill the need of != operator 😅

Anyway, I think that I could workaround it, but having that kind of Condition would be awesome ☝😁👍

The idea would be using a boolean or an integer Local Variable to know at which "state" your character is; having a sheathed weapon, holding a hammer, holding a sword, etc...

However, you mention you miss having more "different" comparators instead of equals. Every time this happens, would you mind dropping them in this topic? I can easily add them :-)

PS: How did you add emojis to your text? I thought it wasn't possible to UserEcho!

As for rules, just use common sense. Help us help you providing clear reproduction steps and screenshots, as well as provide us with the Unity and Game Creator versions you're using.

Presets For Different Genres

Crispy 2 months ago in Game Creator updated by Marti (Lead Developer) 2 months ago 1

I might just be lazy, but I think having demo scenes with everything set up will help a lot. You'd be able to test the limits of the asset yourself, and it'll allow newcomers to learn quicker and ask lesser questions. And letting people play the demo scenes on your website would also help the asset grow. So far I haven't seen any demo scenes that really shows what GC is capable of, and I'm having a hard time exploring that myself.

For example, you can make a Survival Preset. This could make use of Stats and Inventory (note that I am taking into consideration those that don't have a particular module, and won't have access to that demo scene, but I think Stats and Inventory are the fundamentals of a survival game). And don't just use a bit of each. Try to make the most use of every module. Then you can make an Adventure Preset which makes use of Dialogue and Quest. Then "Run and Gun" with Shooter and Behavior. And an RTS preset, which focuses more on a different type of interaction, rather than trying to use all the modules.

A big problem I found is knowing which actions I should use to best achieve what I want. Yes, people have said to me "you have to be creative". But look, most controllers on the asset store comes with the best settings out of the box. So you know right away what you can achieve with it. Personally, I don't want to spend hours messing around with different actions, trying to get the "best settings out of the box". I want the best settings as soon as I open the box, then I can easily adjust it to my needs. Only you know the "best settings".

Compatibility with Unity 2019.2

ProfPivec 4 months ago in Game Creator updated by Marti (Lead Developer) 3 months ago 2

When installing GC in Unity 2019.2.1f1, only two error appeared and the GC toolbar didn't.

Changed GameCreatorToolbar.cs as below.

line 103:  SceneView.duringSceneGui += OnPaintToolbar;

line 115: SceneView.duringSceneGui -= OnPaintToolbar;

Saved and toolbar then appeared. 

onSceneGUIDelegate is obsolete. Suggest next version of GC includes this update for future compatibility.

ads an - to my varibles

dyrwoolf 1 month ago in Game Creator updated by Marti (Lead Developer) 4 weeks ago 5

First i create an varible


Then i go and create a action and chose the vaible, it looks fine

Untill i select it, then it ads a  "-" in front of my varible, so it cant access it.


To get this to work i have to create a new varible with a "-" that it will reference in the action. So i end upp with 2 varibles, one a dummy and one with a "-" infront of it that it uses.

Head Turn Overdrive

Kal 1 month ago in Game Creator updated by Marti (Lead Developer) 1 month ago 1

My characters are often turning their head (hotspot/Head look at) in unnatural ways which breaks this feature for me as such movements would break their necks in reallife.


Using Mixamo rigs. A sensitvity slide/decrease would be awesome.

Things we should not duplicate

Crispy 2 months ago in Game Creator updated by Marti (Lead Developer) 1 month ago 1

Duplicating stuff speeds things up a lot, but there seems to be some things we shouldn't duplicate, like Behavior Graphs, because they will be referencing the same data, so changing one graph will affect the other.

Another example would be game objects with local variables -- I made sure to Regen the ID when duplicating objects, although I don't know if this is necessary as this is not covered in the docs. 

Should we duplicate States?...

I think you should give us a list of the components and files we should not duplicate currently. It's given me a lot of headaches. Sometimes I want to be safe so I don't duplicate, but I might just be wasting my time (and it's not just a little time).

adjust the camera controls on mobile

The Scrag Mag 2 months ago in Game Creator updated by Marti (Lead Developer) 2 months ago 2

Hi I'm just looking to see where can i change the settings for the speed the camera rotates with the touch controls on mobile. 

I've gotten it working on android with the joystick prefab for character movement but the pace at which the camera moves around when you swipe on the open screen is very slow and wondering what the term is to make it move around faster? 

Sorry if this is obvious. Loving the assets by the way

Answer

If you change the Sensitivity setting for the Camera Motor, this will solve the problem. Ideally, you can provide a settings panel for the Player to choose their own settings. There are examples of this in the Accessibility Module.

Just something to point out

Jaco Sauer 2 months ago in Game Creator updated by Marti (Lead Developer) 2 months ago 1

For those of you who want to be ultra-creative, you can use the slider UI, then delete the slider and keep everything else, tie that to a health variable and use it on the UI as a health indicator. Fast simple and easy. - Just an idea
