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"

Collisions in shipping build with -nativizeAssets

I'm making a multiplayer game. To test how everything works I built a dedicated server for Linux and a client for Windows. My project is based on 3rd person template (blueprint, and then I converted it to C++ project by adding C++ class). Also, for building executables, I made a virtual build server using "UnrealEngine-release" 4.17 branch source code (4.17.1). I build server and client executables by using a command line (virtual server does not have a video card).

So, everything works as expected until I add -nativizeAssets into command line (client):

 cmd /k c:\Unreal\UnrealEngine-release-4.17\Engine\Build\BatchFiles\RunUAT.bat ^
     BuildCookRun -project="c:\GameArtists\Unreal\D1M1Arena\Unreal\D1M1Arena.uproject" ^
     -nop4 -cook -compressed -stage ^
     -platform=Win64 -clientconfig=Shipping -serverconfig=Shipping -nativizeAssets ^
     -pak -archive -archivedirectory="c:\GameArtists\Unreal\D1M1Arena\Unreal\Build " ^


 cmd /k c:\Unreal\UnrealEngine-release-4.17\Engine\Build\BatchFiles\RunUAT.bat ^
     BuildCookRun -project="c:\GameArtists\Unreal\D1M1Arena\Unreal\D1M1Arena.uproject" ^
     -nop4 -build -cook -compressed -stage ^
     -noclient -server -serverplatform=Linux -serverconfig=Shipping -nativizeAssets ^
     -pak -archive -archivedirectory="c:\GameArtists\Unreal\D1M1Arena\Unreal\Build " ^

Then collisions for projectiles do not work: all projectiles just go thru geometry. Projectiles OnHit

This is how projectile's collision looks like

This is how projectile channel looks like

when I build server/client without -nativizeAssets, it all works perfectly fine. Is it a bug or am I doing something wrong? Could it be that my channel "Projectile" got lost in nativization?

I suppose that this is related to https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/592531/ue-4151-nativize-blueprint-collision-bug-spawning.html - as you already have commented there, you have noted this, too :-).

I have a very similar issue - the workaround I'm using for now is to update the collision settings in "Begin Play" of the corresponding actors by using "Set Collision Response To Channel" or "Set Collision Profile Name". This needs to be done on both the client and the server, as it is not replicated.

Thanks! I see that it has been scheduled to be fixed in 4.19. Hopefully, by the time I release the game, it will be fixed already.
