Guitar Hero Collisions / And Gate not outputing

Hello I was trying to make a simple guitar game to teach my students and I was making a demo to see if it was possible and I was hit with a major problem. When I press the a key and the collision is true there is no output from the and block. Not sure what I am doing wrong. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.


Maybe set the Keyboard behavior to Repeating? I find that when using the AND Logic Gate with a Keyboard behavior, the repeat setting often helps a lot unless you want insanely precise timing (which no one wants unless they’re making a FromSoft game).

an and gate is detecting if it happened the same frame
no one is frame perfect

instead, make the collision start a 0 second timer that repeats for 30*seconds that you want the hit to still be viable after pass


Yes, the repeating function works thanks I figured it constantly checked if it was touching or not apparently the collision detection is for only 1 frame

Thanks this is a great idea I can just make a mini-timer after the collision because one is frame perfect.

that’s complicated, the keyboard repeat works way simpler

No problem kirtis.

with keyboard repeat you could just hold the key down and get a hit


It could have been explained slightly better, but yes, galactians method is better than repeating key press.

Proximity is also another option instead of using Collision (dw, I won’t complain about performance this time)


I ended up using nonrepeating key and making a simple timer and switch Im sure there is a much better way than what I did below. Alpaca the proximity block would probably be the best way it would be the most reliable I might try that as well and see if I get more reliable results.

I tried Alpaca’s way and its way simpler and way better thanks a bunch this is what I should have thought of initially.
