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"

Spawning Emitters (Muzzle Flashes and Ejecting Shells) On server

Hello, I am making a CO-OP Multiplayer Zombie Shooter, just a little project for me and my friends, And I am to the part in the project where I start to implement weapon attributes (ex. Muzzle flashes, Ejecting casings of the weapons bullet type, etc) and I have it all set up on client side, but not server side, I thought it was easy as a click of a button but i cant seem to find a replication button anywhere for the emitters. I am assuming I will have to make a function telling the muzzle flash to spawn using switch has authority, But I already set up firing animations for the weapons for server side and client side, But i try to plug in the particle effects and they don't show up. Please help me with this problem! Thank you!

Hey ClassyGentleman,

Here is an example of how you can make sure the Authority (server/host) can let the other client(s) know to create a muzzle flash / sound / shell ejection:

For some reason this is not working in 4.14.1. Any idea why?

You must Replicate Functions in Blueprints. If you've no idea how this works, then follow this piece of documentaion, should be easy to digest:


And if you follow aong with those quick videos from Epic staff, you'll master it quickly ;) Specially "Part III: Function Replication" at ur case.
