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"

The wrong player keeps respawning

In my game the character's death is triggered by entering the KillZVolume - Playing single player works fine, the character respawns as expected upon death - When playing multiplayer, if the second player dies it makes the first player respawn instead

I believe it has something to do with the way I'm passing information through the level blueprint. At the moment it casts to my MPGameMode blueprint - when player 1 dies this appears to work, but when player 2 dies, the cast fails.

Any help would be greatly appreciated :) Thanks

I think it's because PlayerController at zero index on server-side is server player. So try take instead 'other actor' pin from OnActorBeginOverlap event node.

Thanks, I think you're onto something, I tried changing the numbers to '1' - this made only the second character respawn.

I couldn't work out a way to link together the playercontroller value with the 'other actor' pin. I guess what I really need is a way to get the ID of the player who fell in the killzone and pass that to the playercontroller field... Any ideas on that?

This would be helpful I hope.

I think here would be useful to read something about UE's client-server model and networking at all.

Ah, that clears it up as I was testing two players on one machine and therefore it couldn't really determine the current player... Thanks heaps!
