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"

Clientside created actor calls rpc with "this", meaning?

I create an actor client side (on all actors and the listen server).

One client calls via RPC a serverMove function and gives as parameter "this".

Does this make any sense or would the parameter be wild in a real multi computer environment? Is "this" in this case only valid if I test all clients and the server on my development system?

What should I do? I am thinking about:

  • create all client side actors with specific names (FActorSpawnParameters.Name)

  • give as parameter to serverMove not an Actor* but a FName (would that be this->GetFName()?)

  • search for actors with the given FName (how?)

Do I have the wrong idea here? Is the idea ok but I need to do it otherwise? Do Actor* somehow work over the network?

You see, I do not understand the basic idea (and I did not find in the documentation this problem, so there is no problem I hope):

  • If you know where to point me to in the documentation, that is good enough.

  • If you know what I need to know, no need to answer my questions, just give me the needed knowledge.

  • If my questions make any sense and you know the answers, pleeeeeasssse. :-)
