Bard Animations and Weapon Draws

Okay, just added a fix to the bard play. Previously, you had to draw your weapon to exit out of player bard mode. However, nonoodles pointed me to the IdlePlayerStop animation which you can run via the following script:


Unfortunately, if you look at Gameplay–>Animations in the CK, the vanilla IdlePlayerStop animation is set up incorrectly. It’s set to run IdlePlayer, which is ostensibly useless, at least when I tested it.


Similarly, the IdleStop animation is useless because it’s conditioned not to run on the player.


Technically, we can “fix” either of these animations by altering the Anim Event or the conditions, but you never really want to fuck with the vanilla settings. Thus, using the copy/paste feature, we make an additional idle with the name IdlePlayerStop3DNPC.


As you can see, this animation runs IdleStop and is not conditioned to anything. Then in our script attached to the scene, we reference the new animation like so:


The result is the player will stop using the lute animation without a need for drawing a weapon. Although sometimes you just feel like drawing it anyway.

  1. It’s still relying on vanilla animation so it won’t/shouldn’t clog up anything. I have never heard of PDTWrapper. What is it?

    There is an IdleLoose_stop as well, not conditioned to anything. Sorry, only noticed it now while going through the skeleton file >.<
