    how would I attach a static mesh to a moving platform (interp actor) so the object moves with the platform?

    The key word is static, you'd have to make the static mesh an InterpActor as well.

    Like Angel_Mapper said, both objects need to be interpactors. You choose which one you animate using Matinee, and when you're done with that:
    - Select the other object and open its properties.
    - Lock the properties window. (top right corner)
    - Select the object you want to attach it to.
    - Under the attachment properties in the properties window you locked, use the green arrow on the far right side of the 'Base' property so that it fills in the other object. (which you should still have selected)
    - Done.

    Try the 'Log' tab in your content browser.

    Checked standard UDK, has a Log tab, I guess the mobile editor doesn't have a Log tab. That's weird. It would be along the tabs in your browser. (Content Browser, Actor Classes, Levels, Groups, etc.)

    Follow-up on your problem:
    Do the 2 interpactors exist within the same level file? (as in, are both in the same level if you're streaming levels)

    Logs are in the UDKGame (or MobileGame) Logs folder. If you're running from the editor (PIE), Launch.log will be the editor's logs and Launch2.log will be the PIE. If you're just running the game normally Launch.log will be the game's log.

    Heh, guess I'm getting lazy with looking for logs. I'm spoiled.

    Am wondering if attachment works in mobile. Wasn't the problem with the flashlight you tried a while ago attachment as well?

    There is more than one log as you can see in pic. How do I find right one?

    And yes I was having a problem attaching a flashlight. Still am, I'm still determined to get that working but thats another day.

    It will be the latest ones, the ones actually called Launch.log and Launch2.log (and not the backups).
    If it is the attachment problem you're running into, you're fresh out of luck as far as attaching interpactors to each other goes. What you can do, however, is hook up the second object to the same movement track as the first. This could do what you're looking to do.

    Yeah, that log does not help. You would have to cause that error to pop up in your current session and paste the log directly after that. Regardless, I'm fairly sure at this point it's just caused by the fact that attachment doesn't work in the mobile version of UDK.

    Well thanks anyway bit going back to the flashlight. If I found a prewritten .uc script file for flashlight wouldn't that fix the flashlight problem. If so
    Could I get a through breakdown on how to add the .uc file to the game. I have no experience in unrealscript

    Maybe a UC file would help, but I have no unrealscript knowledge either, so I'm out.
