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"

Spawn Emitter On Hit Client problem

Hi everyone!

I'm having a problem with Spawn Emitter At Location's consistency. I expanded the First Person example with network functionality and have the server spawn a projectile and when the projectile hits a surface, the client spawns an emitter at that location. I think the problem is that the client doesn't always register that as a hit, even though the server does. You can see in the video below that the server logs the name of the actor hit, while the client sometimes does not. You can see in the video that the explosion sometimes happens and sometimes it doesn't.

The Projectile is set to replicate and it's fired from an event that happens on the server.

How would I go about solving this issue?

I don't know if you still have this problem, but it might be because the actor manages to get destroyed on the server before the client gets to spawn an emitter. (Ie, server gets message, destroys actor, sends destroyed actor message, gets intercepted by the client before the client gets to do the hit-detection). Classic network race-condition
