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"

Replicated functions in blueprints?

In blueprints, variables can be set to replicated, which replicates them from the server to clients.

However, I don't seem to be able to make replicated functions in blueprints, so that I can execute a function on the server from a client (Equivalent of reliable/unreliable server/client functions in C++).

Is this functionality not in (yet), or am I just missing something?

There are replication options in custom events. So you coulud create a custom event, set its replication options on the Details tab, and call that event when appropriate.

That's EXACTLY the option I was looking for. This is the equivalent of server/client functions. Thanks!

What if I need it to return a variable at the end? Like "Choose one from this array, delete it from there and give me its reference"?

Good question, i mean it is possible to workaround this somehow but thats somekind of dirty. I hope we get the possibility to get replication options for any function anytime.
