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"

Authority and Multiplayer on Input Movement

Hello! Should I care about making "Add Input Movement" to be calculated on the server side only (authority true)?

Most of examples I see, people don't care about making the movement authority only. Isn't it possible to hijack the memory where the client is running and make the character hover or run faster or teleport?

I see a lot of texts and tutorials talking about things like Damage, Health and so on should be server side only, but all examples I see of multiplayer people just don't care about the movement.

Am I being paranoid?

I ve made some explanation about this (I think). My purpose is the player pressed key to forward, turn... but it is server which will apply movement, and send new location to all client.


I hope it will help you

ps: Otherwise don't hesitate to write specific question
