Help With A research project using UDK(FOR PSYCHOLOGY)
Hello , let me introduce myself. My name is Andres Sepulveda, i'm a Psychologist from Chile,and beacuause a like game development i worked on it for a time on my own projects,using other frameworks and engines.
Ok the actual situation is that coleague of mine ask me help for a research in my field. The research consist in measuring the deviation and collision that a driver could have when he is writing a message(twitter by example) while driving a car, through a straight lane. When this happen, must write the crash time and position on a file so then we can make a graph with the information gathered, and compare it for each test subject.
So i offer myself for this research experiment, and i was just reading about UDK development for experimenting the tool, and ia decided to use this engine for developing the game for this research. So this is what i have done this far. the level design
i have created a kismet secuence for getting the player inside the car at the start
and i created a script that register the position, X Y Z for the player, and show it on screen for debugging purposes.the position is recorded every second
But now, i have almost a week trying to get the next part of the experiment:detect when the car hit one of the walls on the side and save this information to a file, (time and position when it occurs)
i have tried kismet and script but i cant get that UDK detect the collision ,i have tried using hit wall, touch events and nothing changes. So i decided ask for help to the experts...and here i am. rocking like a hurricane haha.
Thank you very much. if the research gets published i will post it . and sorry if my english it's no so good.
