Attack system
Hello. I reorganise attack system in my game and I have some questions which are connected with this. I make some changes that weapons add damage to character when they have collision with one of the character bones (like in Swing Collision Detection tutorial). But some of my weapons are too short and probability to add damage is very small. What's more I want to add damage after event was occured (so I use eventAfter method). What can I do with this weapons? Could you tell me how you made it in Esenthel RPG 2 (daggers add damage properly all the time but they are one of short weapons)?

RE: Attack system
I use triangle (weapon swing path) -> capsule (character controller) intersection
just make sure that you're triangle is big enough (set its vertexes at right length)

RE: Attack system
Is in engine any function which check collision between triangle and shape?

cuts=Cuts((Shape)triangle[0].plane(),ai.ctrl.actor.shape(false)

I have this line now but it doesn't work.

RE: Attack system
cuts=Cuts(triangle[0],ai.ctrl.actor.shape(false));

In this situation I got error:
error C2665: 'EE::Cuts' : none of the 46 overloads could convert all the argument types
