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"

How to replicate large binary data?

I've seen this asked before, but most of them seem to be fairly old and since UE4 is always evolving/upgrading, it's time to see if there's new ways to do it.

I need to replicate large chunks of binary data during game play. These will usually be a couple of KB, so anywhere between 1 to like maybe 10KB. This is something that's generated by the server and evolves during game play so I need a way to sync it server -> client. Can UE4's replication system handle this? or do I need to handle this separately, like through a secondary TCP socket?

For more clarification, these pieces of data need to be reliable, but they do not need to be as quick as something like positional data. These are processed out of band on the server, and the client handles it whenever it gets one. So this should not block other traffic, or hang either the client or server.
