How to Execute this math formula in playMaker ?
« on: September 09, 2019, 09:53:54 PM »
Hello !



Someone let me know that how to execute this Math formula in playmaker. Look at red box.  (1.07)10

What is that 10 means ? Multiply by 10 or what?
Sorry, I'm weak on Maths.

Thanks

This is called exponentiation. The normal written value (1.07) is called base, the raised value (10) is the exponent, or power. It means:

X = 1.07 × 1.07 × 1.07 × 1.07 × 1.07 × 1.07 × 1.07 × 1.07 × 1.07 × 1.07

That means, the base is multiplied as many times with itself as indicated in the raised value (power).

Never needed it, but here’s the function:

There should be an action, if not, I can probably make one.

Hi !

I found this
https://github.com/jeanfabre/PlayMakerCustomActions_U4/blob/master/Assets/PlayMaker%20Custom%20Actions/Math/FloatOperatorAdvanced.cs

When I imported the script. it gave these errors

Code: [Select]
Assets\PlayMaker Custom Actions\Math\FloatOperatorAdvanced.cs(10,39): error CS0246: The type or namespace name 'FsmStateActionAdvanced' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

Assets\PlayMaker Custom Actions\Math\FloatOperatorAdvanced.cs(40,24): error CS0115: 'FloatOperatorAdvanced.Reset()': no suitable method found to override

Assets\PlayMaker Custom Actions\Math\FloatOperatorAdvanced.cs(51,24): error CS0115: 'FloatOperatorAdvanced.OnActionUpdate()': no suitable method found to override


How to fix this ?

Hi.
You should have the FsmStateActionAdvanced.cs file.
But i can't seem to find it on the Ecosystem.

Try the one that i attached below

Hi.
I just noticed that there are 2 versions of that action.

if you are on unity 5 or higher you should get the unity 5 version, this one does not need the FsmStateActionAdvanced.cs anymore.

Hi !

FloatOperatorAdvanced.cs fr Unity 5 is empty now :P
I use Unity 2018 and that gave error.
Errors gone after imported FsmStateActionAdvanced packge.

It is working.

Btw Result is like this 7.868609. How can I make it to 7.78 ?

Thanks

Hi.
If to display you can use convert float to string and set formant 0.00

I also noticed a action on the Ecosystem called 'Float Decimal Count'

Maybe that could be useful for you as well
