hi i have been making a simple game and i need my character to throw a ball. the thing is he will be trying to hit AI’s so the ball needs to have a motion Actuator but the character needs to have an animation to throw the ball. how can I have him throw the ball half way through the character throw animation?
Via Python you would have to get a particular Frame of the Action ( getActionFrame(layer=0) ? ) and if that Frame is active, the Ball must be unparented. Maybe it must get a new set Linear Velocity, but maybe the Velocity while being parented will count as well, I don’t know.

thanks for the help, yes bone.blend is basically what i want except the character will follow through. Could i copy some script? i don’t know much about python i tried to learn once but i’m not a very good programer.
You could, but it may be easier for me to do it for you animate your character, save the action and i’ll show you how to do it
ok here is the .blend and i changed the ball to a juggling club, so i have the throw animation when you press space bar in the GE and at frame 35 i need the club to come out of his hand do 2 or 3 spins and land on the ground.
