variablesbyname

Before I will move forward with perks I would like to show you guys how to get, set and increase variables (floats and ints) by name. You don’t need to have reference to variable to make operations on it.

In this tutorial I will create global functions that can:

  • Get/Set float by name,
  • Get/Set int by name,
  • Increase float/int by name,

Again I will use C++ for this and as always it will be super easy!

Every game should have analytics. You need to know your players and make a game that they love. Analytics will help you a lot. In ShooterTutorial example I would like to know:
