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"

RPC Event with map-variables


my Engine crashes everytime, when I use a multicast event (executed from server, Blueprints) which sends parameters with "map-data" from variables. For me no problem to work around, but it seems to be a bug and should be fixed. Also because replication of these map-variables is already blocked.

By any chance, are you doing these calls from inside a Level Blueprint? If so, it's possible that's it's related to a confirmed 4.16 Engine bug I recently posted here:

I didn't call it from Level Blueprint but from Game State. But thank you. I think the problem is relatet to the map-parameters, because it works if I use for example arrays instead.

Last time I looked into TMap replication it was not supported. It was not long ago (around 4.15 release) but Im pretty sure its still the case. Not really a Bug just a missing Feature that still needs to be implemented. TMaps themself just recently got general BP support so expect them to miss some Features and beeing buggy a bit in General.

But what can we Ask for now is a Warning Message if TSet/TMap is used on Replication Events.

I agree. A warning message would be nice. That's on reason why I wrote it here in the answerhub. The feature that replication works with them generally, would be even better.

I can go ahead and toss in a feature request for a warning that will trigger when TSet/TMap is used in this manner.

Thanks for your suggestions.

This still crashes on 4.18. Spent two days on this... (20+ hours) Thanks......

Also the crash log, references a .cpp file that no longer exists... (Says deprecated code)

Now, I get to manually split the map, into two arrays, just to recreate them into a map on the server.

Still an issue in 4.19... Quite annoying.

Yes i was creating almost full project without noticing that Map Variable can't be replicated and now i have to waste working weeks and weeks to change all map variables to split name and float ....it's indeed annoying.. 4.19
