Post news Report RSS I need help with animtree and melee atack! help me please!

Hi friends! I need some help with animtree, melee atacks and custom animations too!

Posted by on

Hi friends: Looking for help desperately! It´s about the enemies I leave a animtree pictures an video about player and enemy pawns, video with the problem and failures and scripts pawn and pawnAI

Script code here:

Each type of enemy has a script associated by Pawn, and that are posted, meshes, aniset, AnimTree, features, etc. ..) The pawn_enemies are walking around, each with its characteristics of speed and attack damage ... I am working in UDK March 2012 build. But, I have two open problems, and can not find any solution.

1-The enemies to get to the position player, stop its movement (there is fine, put in a position to break ...) but why the enemy lowers the z axis and passes through the floor? If this all seems ok, right?

2-The enemies by touching the player, take away life, it sounds like the sound of attack, but not how to make me leave the animation! I've proven it all! In the end I left the attack animations anim node linked by tree (also for the player, that does not work), but do not know what else to release the attack animation happy!

Looking for urgent help, I'm desperate!


You are using PathNodes now, but maybe NavMesh will be the better decision?
I'm using NavMesh and my Pawns just aiming to the floor when reach the player but not passign through the floor :)

I don't recommend you to use any offsets. If your Pawn has one of UDKPawn or UTPawn base classes than it should work fine out of the box. I'm trying not to change any custom properties, because if it's not working than I'm doing something wrong :)

And about part 2 of Your quastion:
When enemy collides whith the player maybe it is worth to check if player is in attacking state. And if it so, than enemies take damage. Otherwise do not apply any damage to enemy (if player is not in attacking state).
