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"

PlayerState CopyProperties not exposed to blueprints

I've been researching how to persist data across ServerTravel's, and the main method seems to be overriding the 'CopyProperties' in the 'PlayerState' class. As shown: https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/43814/playerstate-persistence-across-map-change.html https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/303795/transfer-playerstate-data-during-seamless-travel.html

The problem is, Blueprints still haven't exposed this key function/event, even though without it Blueprints are missing a KEY networking component.

Can this please be rectified already, its soon late 2016, and data persistence in Blueprints is still not a thing.

As of Unreal Engine 4.14, CopyProperties is now exposed to blueprints. I was able to override it in a derived player state class. However, if you add additional properties to the custom player state, make sure you mark them as "Editable" (checkbox). For some reason it does not work if you don't do this.

Thanks for the "Editable" advice, that fixed my issue.
