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"

Server sided Widget

So you create a widget on client side only and add it to viewport client side only and that's why we cant use Replications in widgets. I tried to make an actor call'd "Server Actor" added it to game scene, made it replicated and added a array variable call'd "Ready" and made it replicated.

I have tried to call this actor from the widget but nothing seems to work. I have tried:

  • Call to Server that cast Multicast

  • Call to Owning Client then to Server

  • Server Directly

  • Multicast Directly

  • Not replicated at all

When i set it to Multicast directly the variable change on one client but all the others does nothing.

Anyone know an other trick i can use to make a lobby where you can select heroes and abilities, join teams and stuff like that with a ready check.
