I’d pay for an Android step counter tutorial in Bolt

DijonScripts 4 years ago updated by Cocell 4 years ago 4

Hey guys, I’m pretty new to all of this, and while semi-familiar with the concept of nodes, as I am a 3D artist, I am finding it difficult to get adjusted to this whole visual scripting thing. I want to try and use the step detector to dictate player movement in a game I had an idea for (a step counted irl would be the equivalent to a step forward in game type of thing), but I’m stuck at even getting a working step counter/detector going! Anyone skilled enough to write a tutorial to help me? I’d rather follow a tut and start learning things than to have someone just up and do it for me, which is why I’m posting here! I could pay you if you wanted, I just really want to start working on this already! 

Thanks in advance!

Bolt Version:
Unity Version:
Scripting Backend:
.NET Version (API Compatibility Level):

I would start by finding a Unity tutorial that may do this and converting it to Bolt. I would also suggest moving this here https://support.ludiq.io/communities/5/topics/391-what-basic-written-tutorials-would-you-like-to-see

And feel free to ask for help on the questions section here and on Discord. 


I was scrolling through the forum to see what I could do next and selected your post. In the video, I show how to create a Step Counter. Hope this is what you're looking. :)

Bolt Quick Step Counter Tutorial

First off, I want to suuuuuper thank you for this! I feel like your response was a lot quicker than I expected anyone to! You’re awesome! I do believe, though, that my wording may have been a little off. What I was aiming for was something like a pedometer/step counter for an Android phone, in the sense that when a person takes a step in real life, that’s registered or at least, counted in the game. For example, if a person has their phone in their pocket and is walking around a store or something, it’s counting/registering those steps, like a pedometer, to which I would then take and somehow translate to in game movement lol. The best/most awesome part about it is that this tutorial you did is something I do think I’d need right alongside the pedometer code, as it would make it easy to display and alter the amount of steps needed to get from one in game place to another and all that stuff I haven’t figured out lol. So again, thank you sooooo much, and just in case you were going to try and work on the other thing, unlimited thanks! You don’t know how much this help means to me! The offer still stands if you want me to paypal you something? ;)

No problem. It's up to you. By the way, I stumbled on this Unity Android Sensor Plugin. This may help you. I haven't tested it yet, but it looks promising.
