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"

Sorry about the duplicate posts, I don't know how I managed to post 3 of the same topic.

I'm aware of the bug you linked to because I created this topic last year https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/431010/gamestate-datetime-variable-not-replicating-to-cli.html

They might be caused by the same code bug, but they are different scenarios which is why I posted this question.

The first scenario is if you set a class variable to replicate and it's type is DateTime when it replicates to the client it's value is reset.

The second scenario is if you call a replicated event and you send along with it a DateTime struct the value is reset when it arrives at the remote system. It doesn't matter if the DateTime is nested within a custom struct or if it's passed in as a parameter to the replicated event -- it's always reseting.

So they are probably caused by the same code bug, but they are two different scenarios which is why I created this topic -- just in case there are two different bugs in the code causing this.

No problem, sometimes things just get duplicated.

It's great that you've discovered another repro for this issue. I am also thinking that it's related to the original bug. As a result, I'll update the ticket with the information you've provided, and if it does turn out to be something different I'll be sure to create a new one.

Thanks for your report.
