    Hello Boxers !
    Is there anyway to disable character/action buttons when taking damage?
    The issue is that my character has a "taking damage" animation where he falls and stands up again.
    Unfortunately if I press something like the jump/shoot button this will cancel the animation or do an action I do not want (like shooting while on the ground).
    Please help I really need to know how.

    Thanks

    Hey there, can you share your nodemap so I can see what's the logic behind this?

    To be clear the idea is to disable the update / signal functions while the death animation is played and re-enable them when that gets completed. I did not see any buildbox template that does that but that does not mean it can't be achievable

    The easiest way would be to add event observer that points to new UI without button.

    Attached is the node map for the character. I am using BB 3.2.3 Smart Penguins custom health nodes.

    ok so, from the Health / Damaged output to your UI buttons you need to create a connection so do something like this

    Damaged -> Signal Invert -> Jump, left, right UI buttons
    Damaged -> delay node (0.5) -> jump, left right UI buttons

    this will ensure you that you won';t be able to tap the UI buttons for at least .5 seconds after you get damage. The keys will work with no issues
