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!

When will the update to 0.9.7 be available and will there been any breaking changes?

No breaking changes planned. Most changes are about squashing bugs and improving performance :-)

Hi everyone! This is the first Game Creator support topic. Feel free to ask your questions here, but remember to search for them beforehand. Some user might have had the same question as you and may already be resolved.

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.

Cheers and happy game making!

Compatibility with Unity 2019.2

ProfPivec 3 months ago in Game Creator updated by Marti (Lead Developer) 2 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onSceneGUIDelegate is obsolete.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 week ago in Game Creator updated by Marti (Lead Developer) 3 days 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 week ago in Game Creator updated by Marti (Lead Developer) 1 week 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 3 weeks ago in Game Creator updated by Marti (Lead Developer) 2 weeks 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 1 month ago in Game Creator updated by Marti (Lead Developer) 1 month 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


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


Look At Offset for Adventure Camera

Crispy 2 months ago in Game Creator updated by Marti (Lead Developer) 1 month ago 6

Could you add the Look At Offset from the Follow Camera to the Adventure Camera? I want to be able to rotate the camera left and right, but not up and down. I have Max Pitch set to 0, but I need to adjust the angle at which the camera is looking at the Player.


I'm marking this topic as completed as it's already been patched for version 1.0.3. It will soon be available. If after updating there's still something off, feel free to drop a line below
