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"

Actor parameters don't replicate?

Why should I manually set parameters in every instance with multicast event in GameState (or other object existed on every client)?

I just want to spawn actor in PlayerCharacter on the server and set some parameters, so they replicate as well as the actor does.

What the point of replicates property then?

Yeah, I'm seeing something like this. I have an instance editable variable in an actor which I am using with a child actor component. I set the variable in the BP editor, on the child actor component, and in-game the Server has the correct value but the client does not.

Not a lot of information here but I'll try a guess at the issue.

  1. The actor itself must be Spawned on the Server and must have the PlayerController somewhere in its owner path. The currently controlled character should work for that. When spawning set the Character as the owner in the spawnActor node.

  2. The new actor must have Replicates=true, this can be set in the BP or at runtime after spawning

  3. The variable must be set to Replicated or RepNotify

  4. Lastly, setting the variable must ALWAYS be done on the server or it will only change on the current client. This usually means creating a custom event and setting its Replicates=RunOnServer and and make sure Reliable=True (at least for testing)
