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"

Setting Player Data on PostLogin?

I'm currently working on getting a simple multiplayer system set up. I can host and join a game no problem, and the movement replicates fine. Now I'm working on getting players to have their names above their heads.

When hosting or joining, I ask for a username and save that in my GameInstance so it persists between levels.

Now I'd like to be able to have each client tell the server what it's name should be. I have a gamemode blueprint created for my actual gameplay map, and I can successfully get the PostLogin event to fire. What I can't figure out is where to put my RPC's and from where to call them. The PostLogin event has a Player parameter, which I can cast to my "BattlePlayerController", but how can I ask the client to send me his username? I've tried doing both multicast and client RPCs but I can't get them to ever execute on the client.
