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"

Emitter Replication

Hello, new to multiplayer here, I'm trying to spawn an emitter on hit location that is visible by the players, but it needs a target and i'm not sure why and how to work around it.

alt text

^ this is what I have in a custom blueprint with a particle system component in it, the custom event "SpawnExplosion" is multicast and replicated. I guess another question is, is this a correct way to do it?

alt text

^ this is how I am trying to use it but i'm not sure what to do with the target, as the "spawn emitter at location" above it has non target.
