I was wondering if it was possible to just use the side scrolling template in UE4 to begin with a fighting game. Very new to this stuff so wasn’t sure if this would be an okay way to create a 2d fighter (using 3d assets though like injustice, new mortal combat, etc.) this way or if you needed to program it into the source code or something.
You can use the sidescroller template for it. Just add fighting/blocking animations and connect them with a input (e.g mouse X,…). Now you just have to somehow figure out how you can add health to the player and how you can cause damage to the bot/player. (my team and I have done something like that with the 3rd person template)
