Trying to create AI on Unreal Engine 4!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (SO FRUSTRATED!!!!!!!)

Last 2 days I have been trying to use AI against the main character in 2D Side scroller in Unreal Engine 4. I did a lot of research on how to create the  AI in youtube, websites and Unreal Engine 4 but nothing. Been doing this for 5 hours over 2 days and nothing is happening and not working. I am very annoyed and frustrated. Just don’t understand why and why it is not working?????????? 😦

Here are some of my tries…..

Here is another link I have tried.

I  tried again and again and again but nothing!!!!!!!!!!

this is the most frustrated i have ever been.


I have researched that to use 2D AI in blueprint can be difficult but 3D AI can be used in blueprint.

I have followed this tutorial for 2D AI in side scroller in Unreal Engine 4.

I have decided to use Matinee to make 2D AI move and throw their object at the main character.

I have used keyframe in Matinee to make AI move around in 2D side Scroller.

That is how the Alligator moves in 2D side Scroller towards Gary the main character.

I am not sure if I am doing the right thing in 2D but main thing I have added AI in this game.

Here is the video with the AI moving in 2D Side Scroller in unreal engine.

It took me 2 weeks to understand AI in unreal engine 4. (headache)
