        Not at the moment. It's pretty on high demand feature but very hard to do, but not impossbile. I will put it into my road map for kit extension.

        To which resolution you want change? Some time ago, Epic changed how fullscreen is handle. For example 1920x1080 can't be set to window mode, it automatically goes full screen. So it's egnine design.
        Try much lower rosolution to see results.

        Thank you. Update is waiting for Epic's approval. Yes, I know Character Interaction kit and it's features.

                i think that is this asset any support, no answers for messages, emails etc. And not know is it bug or what as earlier mentioned unlocked level system not work in packaged version, it may depends on some settings not know. But would like to know some asnwers, or then i need refund it, unlocked level system is one thing why i bought this and not working for me

                  Hello Tero. Sorry for late reply. I was out of town for last few days (weekend plus 2 days) and didn't have a way to respond.
                  I'm responding to all comments and questions very quickly, as you can see in history. Again, sorry for inconviance.

                  What was wrong with resolution?

                  Back to issue with saving - I will look at it today. That's really odd because I didn't change regarding saving for very long time and even more weird is it works fine in standalone version.
                  Maybe it's something related with saving permisions. Can you tell me what did you change in package?
                  Since you added new levels, did you add level BP_Finish_level
                  and set correct level at the end? https://i.postimg.cc/y6npcHF7/image.png
                  Remember to name your levels same as in enum Level_01, Level_02 etc.
                  Here's tutorial how to add a new level to project:
                  https://1drv.ms/b/s!ArQ2o4Lr9uLggVHc3Hhg_w9lcMjJ Its for side scroller but logic is the same.
                  I will check it and get back to you as soon as possible.

                    hamsterPL I have the update. So what did you do? Paragon chars, mixamo chars etc.

                    Comment


                      It would be helpful to know what files are added or changed in the updates, to make it easier to determine how to merge the update with our own projects that are using TPSK as a starting point.

                      For minor updates it will be faster and simpler to merge the changes into our existing projects. For more complex updates, it might be best to merge our changes into the updated TPSK project.

                        Yeah, that's good idea. I wrote down which files I've changed (from what I remember) but in next patch I will try to make more detailed list.
                        But bare in mind that I can't update just few files, I have to send whole project to Epic, even if there is a change in one file.

                        Current update is for UE 4.19-4.21

                        Change log:

                        Bugfixes:
                        - animation poses for covers for Paragon characters
                        - fix for shotgun bullet orientation
                        Added:
                        - AI - new attributes:
                        - disabled stealth kill
                        - no reaction to player
                        - immune to player damage

                        Changed files:
                        Blueprint'/Game/ThirdPersonKit/Blueprints/BP_TPPCharacter.BP_TPPCharacter'
                        BehaviorTree'/Game/ThirdPersonKit/Blueprints/Human_AI/BT_Human_AI.BT_Human_AI' (only comments)
                        Blueprint'/Game/ThirdPersonKit/Blueprints/Human_AI/BP_ThirdPersonShooterAI.BP_ThirdPersonShooterAI'
                        AimOffsetBlendSpace'/Game/ThirdPersonKit/ParagonTwinblast/Animations/AO_Crouch_right_rifle.AO_Crouch_right_rifle'
                        Couple animations assets for Twinblast and Wraith for cover system idle poses. Unfortunatelly I don't remember which ones.

                        ===============================================

                        Update regarding Mixamo character compatibility:

                        I had to cancel patch for it because I found few issues after retargeting and actually I can't add Mixamo character in package because it's prohibited. These things slow this process a bit.
                        What you actually need is to add root bone, rename joints and map them to Paragon rig. With last thing there is a way to speed proces up for UE 4.20 and up because now you can save bone mappings. But problems occured with anim BP where logic refered to specific joints which has different name then Paragon/Epic skeleton. I think I will make a tutorial, about this and skip patch with bone mappings because when bones will be named the same, it should automatically match Paragon/Mannequinn skeleton.
                        So stay tuned, I will test it and post a video how to implement Mixamo character, hopefully in next couple days.
                        Also right after that, I think I will be able to finally annouce road map for new features/improvements for Third Person Shooter Kit for this year!

                            2019 Features Roadmap

                            This year I plan to extend Third Person Shooter Kit. I have big ambtion plan, but I don't know how much of this I will achieve.
                            My goal is to make it AAA quality with ready to use advanced systems that you see in current games, like Tomb Raider, Division, Batman or Metal Gear Solid.

                            These are things I would like to work on and know how to do it. That list is in random order, so some feature/new assets can be sooner then later. Although I'm happy to hear your feedback about list priority!


                            Third Person Shooter Kit - additional features:
                            1. - New stelth kill animations
                            2. - New camera system - each camera state can be setup in one assets data instead of in player character BP
                            3. - AI strangle and aiming feature
                            4. - New roll animation
                            5. - New climbing ladder animations
                            6. - Different player death anim - now it's just animation, I want to change to ragdoll and grey post process
                            7. - Checkpoint system where AI and objects actually respawns
                            8. - AI spawner system
                            9. - New example player/AI meshes and demo level - taken from Epic examples which are free
                            10. - Stealth mechanics - AI can found body and AI and go to standby state
                            11. - Contextual jumping and climbing - run and jump from rail to hang and climb up
                            12. - Rail hanging and shimmy movememnt with stamina bar - similar like in MGS 2
                            13. - Animation quality pass - better animations for cover system, melee attacks and locomotion starts/stops
                            14. - Audio quality pass - music and SFX replacement
                            15. - Weapon system refactor - weapons as seperate blueprints so new weapons can be added easly
                            16. - Weapon slots - main weapon 1 and 2 plus side arm, proper equping with animation, now it just appears
                            17. - Contextual climbing - like in Division, without jumping which exists now
                            18. - New AI archetypes using free Paragon assets (models, FX and anims)
                            19. - Interactive objects - animations, logic and model - pulling lever etc.
                            20. - Cover system - curved covers including 90 degrees change covers, simple cover to cover mechanic (side to side only)

                            22. - Generic item pick up like ammo - similar like in latest Tomb Raider
                            23. - Item boxes opened with genreic animation, like kicking or squat and pick up
                            24. - AI - running into cover and shooting at the same time

                                Can you add a tag based system to control what actor classes the AI should react to?
