    "Dashpad" that moves player into a specific direction

    so im about to make some Kind of "Dash Pad" ( duno how it would be called correctly in english ) where, if the player is on top of it, the player gets moved in the direction the arrows moving at.
    The game is a Isometric like game and i dont know in what way i would archieve this.

    On the dashpad actor BP, i tried to make and component begin overlap and add a "add movement input" for the player character, in the movement input i tried to manually set the direction in which the player should get, -1 X in this case, to "loop" that effect, i added a delay for the duration of "0.2" and re-entered it the add movement input, for testing purposes.

    Ignore the "force" check.

    I don't think you can use force. But you can use launch character.

    I believe there are tutorials on YouTube for making jump pads

    Don't shy away from bugs in your game. Don't play it as intended. Break your game so you can fix it!


      Ok uhm, just in case i confusing you, i dont want my character to get like punched back, instead like an flat escalator, if u dont move, u go backwards :P
      So i dont know if i can archieve the result i need in launching the character, but im going to watch some tutorials it now, so thanks for that

        You don't specify your problem.
        what exactly happens (or doesn't)?

        This is my Dashpad:

        (You have to multiply Speed with delta if you want speed to be cm/s)

        You have to make sure, that your collisionbox and your character both generate Overlap Events!
