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"

Multiple Game Instances?

I've set up a host/join game MP system a lot like the one used in the Multiplayer Shootout project. Because of the way the Game Instance and State Enum classes work, all non-host clients' screens will go blank whenever a game is hosted. I assume that this is because each client is using the same Game Instance.

Is there a way to assign a different Game Instance to each player?

actually, everyone has his own GameInstance (this object is kept for the entire runtime of the game), maybe you mean GameState.

If that's the case, then my problem isn't making any sense.

I'm calling a function from the GameInstance BP that removes the Main Menu UI from the viewport, starts a new MP session, and opens a new level. Whenever I do this on a listen server, the main menus on all the clients' windows are removed as well.

Bump. This is a major problem and I don't think I can continue work on my project until it's fixed.

Sorry for bringing up old news, but is that function that removes the widget being replicated?

I'm not sure. I re-made the project's infrastructure months ago so the function doesn't exist.
