Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Function isn't getting called

I'm working on a fps and took some weapon code from the shooter game but I've run into a very strange issue where a function is getting called but it never gets executed. Here's what's happening, my code calls ServerNotifyHit but ServerNotifyHit_Implementation never gets fired.

this is the function declaration

 /** server notified of hit from client to verify */
 UFUNCTION(reliable, server, WithValidation)
 void ServerNotifyHit(const FHitResult Impact, FVector_NetQuantizeNormal ShootDir, int32 RandomSeed, float ReticleSpread);

and here's where it tries to call the function. I used breakpoints and am using an onscreeen debug msg so i know for sure that its getting to the point where it tries to call ServerNotifyHit

 void Aweapon_pistol::ProcessInstantHit(const FHitResult& Impact, const FVector& Origin, const FVector& ShootDir, int32 RandomSeed, float ReticleSpread)
     if (MyPawn && MyPawn->IsLocallyControlled() && GetNetMode() == NM_Client)
         // if we're a client and we've hit something that is being controlled by the server
         if (Impact.GetActor() && Impact.GetActor()->GetRemoteRole() == ROLE_Authority)
             // notify the server of the hit
             GEngine->AddOnScreenDebugMessage(-1, 5.f, FColor::Red, FString("trying to call ServerNotifyHit()"));
             ServerNotifyHit(Impact, ShootDir, RandomSeed, ReticleSpread);

Isn't "_Implementation" is used in blueprint related events?

not in this case

Yea but as i know it only used in events, can tell me why it suppose to be called? Is it because "WithValidation"?

i think because of server. https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/77666/networking-c-withvalidation.html , that explains what "WithValidation" is for.

They saying about "_validate" not "_implmentation"

its because of server

     /// This function is replicated, and executed on servers.  Provide a body named [FunctionName]_Implementation instead of [FunctionName];
     /// the autogenerated code will include a thunk that calls the implementation method when necessary.

Ah ok, in this case UHT should generate the function body which calls implementation, you can study this generated code in Intimidate direcotry

The thing is that it should, but its not. The generated file seems to be missing all that info also.
