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"

Child Blueprint StaticMesh Replication Issue

Hi guys, I'm just learning about networking and replication and I'm running into a strange issue where when I update a StaticMesh component that is in a Blueprint which is a child of another, the StaticMesh is duplicated on the client. What I mean by this is that on the server the mesh moves as expected, however on the client the mesh moves however it also leaves behind a copy of the mesh at it's original location. I'm not sure if perhaps i'm not understanding something with how networking works or what the deal is.

[EDIT] It seems doing a Save All fixes the 'issue'. Doing a simple recompile on the child Blueprint brings the issue back.

Please see the steps below and attached images for how to reproduce this scenario.

1) create parent BP based on actor, no events/functions or variables required

  • set replicate movement

  • set net load on client

  • set replicates

  • List item

2) create child BP based on parent BP

  • add staticmesh component, give it a mesh

  • create the Blueprints as per attached images

I'm using version 4.6.1 of the engine

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks, Harley.alt textalt text

I have an exact same issue. Have you managed to resolve it yet?

No i think maybe a bug. I found that by changing something slightly in the level and then doing a save all made the issue go away. Not ideal but gets around it

Unfortunately, in my case the issue persists after doing that.
