[SOLVED] ExampleMap "Press E to place bomb"
About that message, i was wondering how it work ?
i've opened the kismet but i've found nothing something like "if Key E is pressed"
so i suppose it works in conjunction with an UI, but i can't find it.
also 'cause, usually it pause the game while here the game is running and the message is just on the right side of the screen...
can some one explane how the ExampleMap "E button input" works ?

i think it works with a Trigger and a ui scene
It's just a trigger volume set as "touch" and a "play announcement". Actually nothing easier.
yes, but if you didn't press E button you can do nothing !
the question was: "is it scriptless ? does it use an UI or you can control the E pressure key from kismet ?"

So you actually ask how they actually bind E to an action?
That's the standard key in Unreal, that's actually set in the UTGame.ini I believe.
Nothing to do with Kismet, everything you "use" is done with "E" in Unreal, if you keep the standard settings.
I have a doubt similar to this post.
In my level I have a DOOR that I intend to:
When I get close to the closed door, some UI scene appears saying: "Press X key to open the door"
How could I do that? The X key is just an example...it could be any other key or button.
I know how to do it through take damage, but it┤s not exactly what I suppose to have.
In Kismet, Im trying to do something like this:
Matinee to setup the door animation
But I dont know how to show the message "Press X key to open the door" and even how to setup the specific key to the Matinee sequence.
This idea can be used also to press a button to lift the elevator or even pick up some stuff in the scenario.
The answare is in the Kismet UDK video
the 2nd video show the Trigger_0 Used -> Toggle [target] -> Light
You have to remove the instigator from the trigger, in the options from your trigger and toggle make sure "max count" is set to 0.

Dwell into your UDK Directory browse to UTGAME search for UTGame.ini or anything similer to this. Take a short browse thru it. one of them i remeber looking at had the letters and what they where used for.
it was very obvious how they are used as it looked exactly look it does in the control config of UT3 only it was in notepad .
just Change what ever key u want. Better still instead of making the trigger trigger if the E key is pressed make the the trigger run of a IF_Used like setup. this will ensure that it will not matter what key is set for USE it will work. then u could just add a nice simply control change ui in the game then users can set there keys to what ever they wish later. FOR the text tho some simple Unrealscript would make it so it would not say Press E but it would Dynamically Grab the Key that the user has set for USE and display that instead but don't ask me how to do this as i do not know my self. I just thought i would share how i would have done it.
I will get there thou in my design project when this happens and i learn it i will right up a TUT on how it is done. My advice for all the SIMPLE problems others run into is to download the BUZZ3d vids and focus on the example level this will give u the Know how to perform basic tasks like your asking.
I think it would be easier if you made a class called BombPlacement or something, so you could include it with the actor browser.
I usually put another trigger in kismet (using the same trigger actor as your "touched" there) without being attached to anything, trigger count to 0, add a comment to the trigger like "press E to toggle lights" then be sure to hit the "output comment to screen" so when you are within range to press the switch it will tell you.
Or create a UI Scene with your button prompt text and graphics, opened off Touch and closed off Untouch, for a more professional look
sounds good Grom i might give it a go my self
i have a door that i want to open and close with the trigger, and i copied the kismet from the example map, made sure all the basic stuff like max count and such is correct, but still nothing happens when i press E while touching the trigger. Any ideas what im doing wrong?
Nevermind, I had aim to interact checked.
