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"

No owning connection for actor

Hello Everybody,

I am trying to add simple jet pack like functionality to the ShooterGame example found on the Unreal Engine Launcher Learn tab. I ultimately want to use this functionality to create a game called "The Afflicted", but I have run into a problem. I have created a child of the ShooterCharacter class and a child of the ShooterGameMode class. My solution builds and launches the editor fine, but when ever I run the editor I get the error message in the Output below and the game character becomes unresponsive to input.

 LogNet:Warning: UIpNetDriver::ProcesRemoteFunction: No owning connection for actor PlayerPawn_Afflicted_C_3. Function ServerSetJetting will not be processed.

alt text

The source code for my character and gamemode can be found here. I haven't changed any other files in the ShooterGame project.

Does anyone know what is causing this error? I am fairly new to the networking side of the Unreal Engine so it may be something simple.

Any help is much appreciated,


Product Version: UE 4.9

From reading this connection ownership is important to RPC's like the one mentioned in the error because they tell them which client to run on.

My question is: How and where are those connections made?

This may not be the sole cause of the warning, but typically I see this warning when I do the following:

  1. Spawn a pawn

  2. Replicate properties from client to server in BeginPlay or Tick (or some other early/recurring function)

  3. Pawn possessed

I'm usually able to resolve it by preventing any of those RPCs from executing by checking if IsLocallyControlled() is true.

I hope that helps!

I had the same issue and I was able to fix it, just by setting all the properties that were passed into my function as "Replicated".
