Yes, i am playing one Tween per State!

And in the Fields

Quote
EVENT
Completed:
Failed:

In Completed i chose "FINISHED", but it still works in that simultaneous way.

Hi,

 yep, cause you should not use FINISH for this, create your own event like "TWEEN DONE" or just "DONE" actually, and use that event. FINISH is a built in event that you should never call manually or have in a state that you expect to last because if one of the action has finished its task it will fire the "FINISHE under the hood, so in your state ONLY have "DONE" event as a transition.

bye,

Hm, tried to do that:



After the action is completed, it stays in that certain state and doesn't go on.

Hi,


 I get it, it's because I was expecting that you use a variable for the completed loops counter, and without it I would not fire the completed event.

 I have updated the package, else you simply inject a variable to watch the completed loops for the tween and the completed event will fire when the tween completes

bye,

 Jean

Hi,

I'm currently looking to move to HOTween (from iTween) and have been trying to animate a pickup to the player as they get within a certain distance. However so far (using HOTween Vector3) whenever the pickup animates to the player, the end point is always the position the player was in when the animation started.

Is there a way using HOTween/playmaker actions to animate the pickup to the player while the player is moving?

Cheers
Andrew

Hi,

 tween engines are likely not your solution of choice for such cases where the target is changing over time.

 instead prefer other solutions like "move towards", "smooth follow Action" and other "seeking" behavior that you can implement yourself using "vector3 Lerp" for example, which will give you far better results and actually the expected behavior.

Does this all make sense?

bye,

 Jean

Hi!,

I have been playing today a little with hotween actions and I think I found a bug. The bug comes when using for example the Vector3 tween action. It seems it ignores the Start entry if it is inserted manually (not through a var).

Cheers.

Hi!,

Well now I'm really embarrased. I have retested what I commented in the previous post and it is working ok :/. The only thing I did was create a new project and make a little example and it works ok. Sorry for the confussion.

On the other hand, the way I'm using hotween actions is writing the result of the tween to a playmaker variable (called result in the action) and then update every frame the real target with a set property action that updates every frame. Is this the right way to do it?

For a transform.position tween it would be:

1) Create Vector3 temp var in playmaker
2) Setup a tween to write the result to this variable
3) Use a property to write to transform.position of the required object

Could you confirm if this is the best way to do it? I don't like the bridge variable but it seems there's no other option.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

 if you want to use Fsm var, yes, that's right way. Now you can set up a tween on the object itself and trigger the tween using the action "HotweenPlayById" then you rely on hotween all the way in terms fo performances during the tweening.

Hi, is there any chance we can get a Hotween Stop by Id?

I have a loop playing and I would like to enter a new state and tell that loop to reset back to 0 stopping the loop and going to the start of it.

edit: Play Backwards on Play By Id doesn't seem to play it in reverse.

edit2: Also when I reload the scene my FSM that is playing the action becomes disabled and I get this.

NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object
Code: [Select]
Holoville.HOTween.Tweener.Rewind (Boolean p_play, Boolean p_skipDelay) (at D:/DG/_Develop/__UNITY3_CLASSES/_Holoville/__HOTween.Assembly/HOTweenV1/Tweener.cs:910)
Holoville.HOTween.Tweener.Rewind (Boolean p_skipDelay) (at D:/DG/_Develop/__UNITY3_CLASSES/_Holoville/__HOTween.Assembly/HOTweenV1/Tweener.cs:278)
Holoville.HOTween.Tweener.Rewind () (at D:/DG/_Develop/__UNITY3_CLASSES/_Holoville/__HOTween.Assembly/HOTweenV1/Tweener.cs:267)

If I disable the action to play the HotweenPlayById it works fine when I reload.

Thanks!
