[Resolved] /HENPC Speedupdate confusion
« on: Jan 17, 12, 12:50:52 PM »

Some devs had questions about speedupdate awhile ago, I just wanted to update here, since the wiki is not doing a good job of making it clear.

Speedupdate is only needed for characters using a speedblend. A speedblend is a sequence that takes the walk animation and the run animation and uses them to do blending on the client while keeping the footfalls synchronized.

Speedupdate pulls the feedback anim knob values from the animation files, and then updates the server with those speeds.

If you are not using a speedblend, then you just have characters that move at their walk speed, and move at their run speed, etc. And Speedupdate will return a value of zero, since those animations don't have feedback knobs set for them.
