Version 1

Math:Abs

This node is the maths operation (Absolute) that will convert the input number from negative to positive.

In the above example we have the negative number of -14.6 & after it has been through the "Math:Abs" node, the result (positive number) is outputted to the hud.

Port Description

Input

Description

Float "A"

The input number to be calculated by the Abs function

Output

Description

Float "out"

Outputs the result

This is a simple operation of adding Input B to Input A, then outputting the result. You can directly set a number into the node for A or B, or input a value from somewhere else. (Both are show in the picture).

In the following example, we have a flowgraph to output the result of the "Math:Add" to the HUD.

Input

Description

Float "A"

The first number being added to

Float "B"

The second number to add the first

Output

Description

Float "out"

Math:BooleanFrom

This node will split a boolean input into a true / false (1/0) output.

In the above example, the flowgraph loops around switching the input of the "Math:FromBoolean" from true to false.

The main part of this example is the section from the "Math:Equal" onwards. The OUT of the Math:Equal is a boolean output which the "Math:FromBoolean" reads and then forwards the signal onto the HUD message nodes.

This then loops back to cycle the number from 1 to 0 (true / false) via the "Math:Counter". The result is that it will cycle between the 2 HUD messages every second.

Input

Description

Boolean "Value"

Output

Description

Any "False"

Outputs the result if False (0)

Any "True"

Outputs the result if True (1)

Math:BooleanTo

This node will take the input of true or false, and convert it into a boolean output.

In the above example upon press the key "O" to trigger the true input, it will make the Math:ToBoolean output a 1 to the HUD. And then upon pressing the key "P" to trigger the false input, the Math:ToBoolean will convert the signal to output a 0 to the HUD.

Input

Description

ANY "true"

The input signal to be converted

ANY "false"

The input signal to be converted

Output

Description

Boolean "out"

Outputs the result in Boolean format (0 or 1)

Math:Calculate

This node is an all in one basic math node. From the operation field on the left side, you can select from Add, Subtract, Multiply or Divide.

Then it will do the selected operation on A and B then output the result.

In the above example, on pressing the key "J" the Math:Calculate node will do the selected operation of "Add" on A & B.

In this example the upon pressing the key"J", the Math:Calculate node will do the first operation (Add) then after it has displayed it to the HUD, it will cycle through to the next math operation after a 1 second delay and pressing "J" again.

First it will do the Add, Divide, Multiply then Subtract.

Input

Description

Any "DoCalc"

Executes the operation

Int "Operation"

The Drop down list to select the operation to preform. Select from Add, Divide, Multiply or Subtract.

Float "A"

Float "B"

Inputs

PortTypeDescription

Outputs

PortTypeDescription

Math:Clamp

This node will take a float number and clamp it to the specified range set within its parameters.

In the above picture, upon pressing the key "K", the "Math:Random" will generate a number between 0 and 100. The signal then passes to the two "Math:Clamp" nodes where they have been set to only output a number between 0 and 50.

So if the number falls within the 0 -> 50 range it will pass through as normal. But if the number is higher than 50 (the maximum set), it will be clamped down to 50.

In reverse, if the minimum was set to say 20, any number lower than the minimum would be raised up to 20.

Input

Description

Float "in"

The input number to be clamped

Float "min"

The minimum of the clamp range

Float "max"

The maximum of the clamp range

Output

Description

Float "out"

Outputs the result

Math:Cosinus

This node will take the input of an angle in degrees and output the result in radians.

In the above example we are using a "Math:SetNumber" to input an angle (56 degrees) which passes through the "Math:Cosinus" to display the result to the HUD.

Input

Description

Float "in"

The input angle in degrees to be calculated by the Cosinus function

Output

Description

Float "out"

Math:CosinusInverse

This node will take the input in radians and output the result in degrees.

In the above example we are using a "Math:SetNumber" to input the radian which passes through the "Math:CosinusInverse" to display the result to the HUD.

Input

Description

Float "in"

The input in radians to be calculated by the CosinusInverse function

Output

Description

Float "out"

Outputs the result in degrees

Math:Counter

Every time this node receives an input, it will increase the number by 1, then forward it to the output.

When the internal number reaches the specified number set in the "MAX" option, it will reset the counter back to zero.

Time based counter

As the signal passes through the flowgraph it increases the counter by 1, then it reaches the first Debug:DisplayMessage, then feed the signal back into the logic any after a 1 second delay.

Then it goes around again, increasing the counter by 1 each time. Once the count is equal to 3 (specified in the Math:Equal) it will hide the first HUD message then Show the second.

Bodycount counter

In this example, when any one of the human AI is killed it forwards a signal through the "Logic:Any" to the "Math:Counter". This will increase the counter by 1 each time it receives a signal. When all 3 grunts are dead, The "Math:Equal" becomes true and the HUD message is updated.

Note: In both examples, the MAX in the "Math:Counter" is set higher than the "Math:Equal". This is because if the counter reaches its set MAX it will be reset to zero and the "Math:Equal" will never become true.

Input

Description

Any "in"

Any "reset"

To force the counter back to zero instead of letting the MAX value do it

Integer "max"

When MAX reached, sets the counter to zero

Math:Div

This is a simple operation of dividing Input A by Input B, then outputting the result. You can directly set a number into the node for A or B, or input a value from somewhere else. (Both are shown in the picture).

In the following example, we have a flowgraph to output the result of the "Math:Div" to the HUD.

Input

Description

Float "A"

The first number to be divided

Float "B"

The second number doing the divide

Output

Description

Float "out"

Math:Equal

The "Math:Equal" node tests to see if input B is equal to input A. This will then output the answer in boolean form.

In the above example, we set a number to 10 (A), and also interpolate another number from 0 - 10 (B). These both feed into the "Math:Equal" node.

Upon start, they are not equal so the signal is passed to the false port. Until (B) has reached 10, then (B) is equal to (A) and it can the pass the signal to the true output port.

There is also an (OUT) port on the "Math:Equal" node. This is a boolean output. In the example above, the OUT acts the same as the true / false ports, but is combined into one output.

This is feed into a "Math:FromBoolean" node which then splits it into a true / false output.

Float "A"

The first number to test

Float "B"

The second number to test against the first
