Sorry for the double post :) also wanted to ask if you know of any way with the current actions to reset a particular item at run time? (all of its fields) Rather than having to manually reset them all xP

I have a feeling there might already be a way and I'm overlooking a term, but I though I should ask :D

Thanks again Deek for all these rad actions! :D


Hey Deek! :D

Just wanted to give a shout, I'm having issues with the (more) updated version of GDE Bool Test, for some reason if I point it towards an older GDE bool I've created, it works no problem, but any of my new ones I've made I get a 'InvalidCastException' from xD

Any ideas? :/


*EDIT: I'm primarily using the action in a template, but am getting the issue in and out of a template.

Code: [Select]
InvalidCastException: Cannot cast from source type to destination type.

Playmaker Help / Re: Timeline Problem

Hi Savaslogan! :)

I believe they're going to be packaged into one of the next versions of Playmaker, but until then I know Eric of DumbGameDev has written a bunch of awesome actions for Timeline available here:

Sorry to necro this thread :)

Having the same issue here - specifically with gameobject variables as well! xD


Action Requests / Cinemachine - Set FOV
« on: May 14, 2018, 03:01:44 PM »
I was curious if there was a way to set the FOV of a cinemachine virtual camera at runtime?

My setup involves just blending between two cameras (up close, farther away) and I figure I could use a Cinemachine Camera Blend, but also though it'd be pretty easy to just manually set the FOV (that ways I wouldnt have to update any references).

Any pointers/direction is super appreciated! :D

Ehhh... not quite sure :) deals with the actions input variable so maybe?

I just duplicated and modified a new version of the action to take an object variable instead, since it might be a fringe case.

Attached incase anyone else needs it, useful for runtime timeline camera assignments!

Question on this! Specifically in regards to assigning the Cinemachine Brain for a Cinemachine track.

Since I spawn my in game camera at runtime, I have to assign the Cinemachine Track generic binding also at runtime. But when I use this action, assigning the main camera doesn't contextually have it grab the Cinemachine Brain component, it just assigns the camera as a game object :\

EDIT: Not sure if it matters, but at runtime, manually dragging/dropping the main camera into the slot works because it grabs that component.

What I need to set: (using my dummy camera object for scene staging)

What setting it currently does:

Any pointers on this? :D

Hey Krmko! :D

Just wanted to follow up since its been a few months and see if you've discovered/been working in a new way since posting this topic? I've been slowly shifting over into the same type of workflow and am totally looking for pointers! :D


Hi Jean,

I absolutely am misunderstanding where performance suffers xD

I'll definitely start porting my current systems over to it then and just save when I need to during level transitions (if ever for something like my current context).

Thanks for the clarification and for you and Djaydino for putting me on the right track :D


Hey djaydino!

I've looked into both xml and json and know the datamaker extension. If you're updating those constantly during a game (say for runtime stats etc) performance actually takes pretty big hit.

Thats why (I was hoping?) I guess past initializing a manager object and creating variables at the start of a scene, it would be more performant? :)

Sorry for the double post ;)

Also might be good to include a vector destination that can be used? (either in offset or in place of target?)

*EDIT: Also! Looking at the code it *looks* like it should be rotating to the direction of movement, but doesnt look like it is? xD

AH! This is SO useful! Thank you for making this!

I remember raiding his exact post thinking huh.. I should see if I can convert this to an action, and just never did xP

Noticed the new version of this action on the Ecosystem is getting a Null Reference Exception that disables the FSM? Something to do with Trigger Target object?
