    In reference to your

    "Problems:
    On true, it just keeps spawning new paerticles every tick instead of moving it
    On release, I have another action and once I hold release, it will redo it forever,"


    When you create your particle, save it as a variable. On event tick, check if that variable is valid. If it is valid then you already have one, you can move it (bypass the spawn call).
    If it is not valid, spawn one and set the variable reference, then continue to your movement code.

    I think this is what you're looking for. If you're holding a button, after 2 seconds (or whatever duration you like) it will unlock event tick. Event tick will be active until you "release" that button. You should do your per-tick calculations in the blue comment box. If you're using event tick for other things not associated with input, you should replace "Set actor tick enabled" calls with "Set EventTickActive bool" or something, and add a branch to only do your hold button events.

    (Note in this example, you should have Event Tick turned off initially)

    Yes cheers but the thing is, the spawn location happens only on button press instead of being updated everything every event tick. And it just wont
    I tried to hook it up to event tick, but the result is crazy



    On button pressed, set bool to true,
    On release, to false

    Problems:
    On true, it just keeps spawning new paerticles every tick instead of moving it
    On release, I have another action and once I hold release, it will redo it forever,


    upd
    I tried "spawn emitter at location". it made the particle follow the camera but it doesn't follow it precisely, it appears wrong place upon removal and spawning it again. it appears sometimes too left, or too forward

    Bind event on holding mouse button, not pressing

    Hello,
    I need to make a continuous line trace on button hold. It should be non stop, and it should move a particle while it is being hold.
    Please halp thanks
