Niagara Effect, Activation Lag?

I’m trying to follow this tutorial for a dash effect using Niagara system. I put “spawn system attached” when the spacebar is pressed and it follows and arrow that is attached to the player model. It works…? but it’s really janky. it only starts to play the effect after 2 spacebar presses, and I’m wondering if anyone has any experience or advice. I spent a while surfing the forums but I couldnt find anything relating to it.

Hi @HierophantPurple!

A few questions:

  • Would you mind sharing the tutorial you are using?
  • Is it just a delay? Or is the effect not firing off?
  • Is your “Is Falling” variable being read correctly and giving consistently correct results?

Any additional information you can provide will be a big help in solving your problem!

Oh yeah, this is the tutorial I was using, however I figured it was too long of a tutorial to keep going through in order debug this problem.

Most of the time it’s just delay, however sometimes it needs 1 or 2 extra presses of the input key(spacebar) in order to work.
