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"

Hi Zeldhoron,

Is your pawn using a CharacterMovementComponent? This is how the character in many of the project templates sends its movement to the server, and it has a lot of built-in functionality to handle movement over a network, such as prediction and correction - so it's a good place to start if it fits the needs of your project.

For a client to send data to the server, it has to call a Run on Server event (or a Server RPC in C++). The CharacterMovementComponent has implemented RPCs in C++ to handle sending the client's movement to the server, and for the server to send corrections to the client.

If you're not using a movement component that supports networking, you'll probably need to add some custom Run on Server events to send the client's movement to the server.

I have tried using a custom event with "run on server" set but any client axis input is dis regarded...

I am currently having this issue too. Client input is being disregarded/not being sent to the pawn.

This is my setup and it seems to work for now, but i think that this is pretty bad workaround :P http://i.imgur.com/2qYazTZ.png
