Description


Basic Feature Preview: youtu.be/xAxOwMlSiok
Advanced Feature Preview: youtu.be/E6bW3d1jaCw

This is a plug-in for Unreal Engine 4 that grants your projects the ability of Input Buffering which is commonly found in action and fighting games. While a controlled character is carrying out an uninterruptible action, buffering user’s input in the meanwhile instead of just ignoring it will make your game greatly more responsive to the player.

In addition, the plug-in features Command Recognition, which enables key combinations in your games. With that, you can even add complex input commands such as Quarter-Circle-Forward Punch, aka Hadouken.

Besides, you can draw input history like practice modes in many fighting games. A thumbnail renderer for Input Commands is also available to make them much more distinguishable by visualization.

This is a paid edition of Input Buffer plug-in for those who think it worth a few dollars and would like to pay for it. You can try the free version first and decide if you want to donate.
