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"

Tick not called on replicated Player controller if game paused

Hi Guys, the problem I'm experiencing is that the remote version (PC that runs on clients, that have role Autonomus_proxy to be clear) don't have tick called on it when I set game pause from the server. All the authority versions that run on server instead have correctly called Tick.

Player controller and GameMode constructor set the following properties:

 PrimaryActorTick.bStartWithTickEnabled = true;
 PrimaryActorTick.bCanEverTick = true;
 PrimaryActorTick.bTickEvenWhenPaused = true; //Setting this true I expect tick is always called
 bAllowTickBeforeBeginPlay = false; //I've tested with this both true and false

I'm trying to do this because I want to pause the game when a new player connects until all is correctly initialized (the problem is that the init flow is on remote PC Tick that is not called, therefore causing the game to hang forever in pause).

My test is done by pausing the game on GameMode BeginPlay calling SetGamePaused(this, true); and planning to unpause after all player are correctly initialized, but if I start with game pause I will wait forever because tick on remote client PC is not called as expected.

Thanks in advance
