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"

Getting bone transforms on dedicated server?

I've noticed that the server copy of the actor's mesh seems to stand in a stationary pose when the client copy is crouching, even though the crouch animation is driven by the CharacterMovementComponent's built in replicating variables. I've gathered that animations don't run on the server (although I've had a hard time re-finding where I read that), but I'm not sure how to get around that. With player characters, I know I can pass data from the autonomous proxy to the authority copy, but that doesn't work with the AI who only exist as simulated proxies and authority copies.

This particular issue is getting in the way of implementing headshots, for context. I have a volume attached to a socket on the head's bone, but since the bone stays in the same relative place on the server a player shooting at the head they see on a crouched character won't actually hit the head, since the trace for shooting is also on the server (and I've already run into issues trying to do a client side trace and passing the info onto the server).
