Worst-case scenario: the UEd Goblin wipes the map and burns down your house.

UE2:Round Robin

From Unreal Wiki, The Unreal Engine Documentation Site
Jump to: navigation, search

Created due to the fact that the RoundRobin actor present in UE1 has been removed. There are two scripts on this page, one created by DalinSeivewright and the other by ElMuerte. A round robin will cycle through a series of names and trigger the associated event.

One-shot Script[edit]

UE2 Actor >> myCustomRoundRobin (custom)
/* A Simple Custom Round Robin Created By Dalin 'MythOpus' Seivewright.
   This RoundRobin has a one time use only but it can be set up
   to do a mass chain of triggering.
   Customize as needed.

          TriggerEvent(Targets[0], self, None); //Always trigger the first item in the array
          Targets.Remove(0,1); //remove the item that has just been triggered
        }
        else if(Targets.Length == 0)
        {
          SetTimer(0.0, false); //If there is nothing left in the dynamic array.. just disable the timer.
        }
}
 
simulated function Trigger( Actor Other, Pawn EventInstigator )
{
 
     //When this actor is triggered, it will set bTriggered as true so the timer can
     //Trigger all it's targets and remove them from the array.

Notes[edit]

While these scripts can be useful for a contained and simple actor, the same effect can also be created using a scripted trigger.
