    any idea when the update will be ready? can't wait
    Hey! Hard to say...still a lot of work left, I was aiming for Cyberpunk release but I think it will slip.
    This is some new info regarding incoming update:

    Update news:
    - completely refactored aiming system. Now it is very easy to add new weapon grip (holding type). No coding is required, just adding assets to data asset.
    - procedural recoil - can be seen in games like Division 2 or Metal Gear Solid 5
    - new reloading animations for pistol and rifle, for TPP and FPP cameras
    - spawning magazine with physics during reloading
    - skeleton and animations for pistol, rifle and shotgun
    - gun sway in FPP
    - improvements for holster pose in FPP - now it is ok to look around, before camera was clipping and character was switching to aiming in wrong circumstances
    - dither opacity material function - added to weapon materials, activated when mesh is close, to avoid clipping with camera
    - much smoother transition in FPP between aiming and holster
    - much smoother transition in FPP during reloading
    - reloading in FPP without resting aiming angle - before upper body was rotating to default position which caused camera clipping
    - recoil applied to aim offset properly - before it might look bad when character was aiming left for example and recoil animation was applied, character was push not from weapon direction but from mesh direction
    - transition between FPP and TPP during reloading
    - added option to alter aiming pose per weapon using IK target location - no coding required, just setting values in data asset
    - ton of smaller improvements that I don't remember anymore

    That took almost 2 months of work, although I was slowed down by injury with fractured bone.
    If something looks great on this video it means it took a lot of work.
    FX are placeholders and audio is not final on this video.

    It is going forward definitely. I hired more outsource to speed things up (additional animations and art) Finishing up very important part which is locomotion. I really want to do it without bugs, high quality, that's why it takes time, but locomotion is very hard, because it is very subjective if it looks good enough. I'm planning some bigger video, but I'm postponing it every week, because I want to show you guys more stuff, and more finished features. I think when I will finish locomotion and aiming, I will make a bigger video showing progress (weapon attachments, some new FX, locomotion, AI throwing grenades, AI picking up items/weapons) I'm aiming for September, but obviously can't be 100% sure if they won't be any surprises along the way. What's positive is that quality is very good and I manged to make pretty advanced stuff already. I already got some new animation delivered so I can share. That's not all of them and also they are work in progress https://youtu.be/D1BWZ-FQGoo

    I think we talked about it on Discord. It is engine crash, not content, so I can't do anything about it, but Epic fixed it in 4.25 as you said. What you can do is to retarget on 4.25 and then migrate to older engine version.

    Hi! I don't know if it's the right place to report a bug. When I retarget animations on version 4.23, it crashes. When I retarget animations on version 4.21, it works. My custom skeleton has exactly the same bones as Paragon TwinBlast. Does it mean I'm stuck with the 4.21 version? (Yeah, I tried to migrate my character, but when I migrate my character from 4.21 to 4.23, some root motion animations like rolling don't work).

    I've isolated the problem and the bug is in all RECOIN animations. When you try to retarget those animations from 4.22 version above, the engine crashes. However, retargeting works on the 4.21 version.

    Okay. Bug reported.

    EDITED: The creator said 4.25 version fixed it. I'll try it and come back for feedback.

    Compatibility update with 4.25 was released. Content (with grenade etc.) wasn't released yet. I'm working on it everyday to deliver as fast as I can.
    I don't get notifications about new forum posts. It is easier to contact me on Discord. https://discord.gg/NdUHQnC
