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 get a widgetbutton working over network?


I started working with Unreal Engine about a week ago. My goal is to make a RPG Multiplayer with different interactions. I'm still learning and getting used to it. Anyways normally I'm figuring out problems myself, but this time I need some help.

So here is the thing:

I have done a simple System where the blueprint gets the cursor breakresult when hovering over an actor with the prefix A so i can simply add more actors that are interactable later.

Then a 2 button widget pops up into the screen asking if you want to Take, Drop (or whatever) the Item. So far so good, with a Event Dispatcher i can manage to print a String when pressing the button, but the thing is i want it to be replicated. But everytime i try to replicate it, no matter how I try, I get the String printed as: Client -2: "Text"

I'm probably missing something pretty easy i just dont know it.

Here is my PlayerController Blueprint

alt text The Widget is just an empty button now because i deleted the wrong solution. It was just a simple Event Dispatcher called from the widget and used inside the PlayerController to print the String, with a custom event put on multicast. But then I always get Client-2 and nothing's working after that. I tried with Destroy Actor but it didnt go off.

Oh and yeah i know that i should have tried it with HasAuthority but you cant call that inside a widget as it seems. alt text
