I cant put in words how frustrated I am trying to make playmaker do this simple task!
When my player comes near the final gold coin to collect ,and enters a spherical trigger zone around the coin , I want the player to automatically jump and pick the coin [as to show his happiness].
Now, my situation is this , that the player will start running and jumps ,[jump is a humanoid animation that makes him jump] but the player stops moving forward when the jump animation starts! . So, I am trying to make the player move forward and upward using lerp , so that it runs simultaneously along with the jump animation.
But, this simple task of trying to move the player forward has left me depressed with the use of playmaker. Neither there are any good tutorials nor forum answers explaining how to do this !.
I have tried all the below things , but failed in one way or another.
1.tried using 'translate' action + 'lerp float' action , works fine with x and z axis , but for some crazy reason , y axis nothing happens[ tried disabling rigid body on player and all, still nothing !]
2. tried 'set position' action. Works fine , but i Dont know how to do translate.forward . The player character just moves to new position without regard to the orientation!!!
If its so difficult to get this small thing done in playmaker and with not much support from forum or tutorial videos and wasting 1 week[ 8 hrs x7 = 56 hours on this one issue .... i am drained tired and beginning to regret buying playmaker ..
. any help will be highly appreciated
