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"

Clients animation not showing on server/other clients


I have watched a lot of YouTube videos about blueprints and replication, and read up on a bunch of similar problems, but nothing seems to be working. My problem is that I have an animation for when my character is standing still and rotating on its own axis, like a turning-in-place animation. The server sees its own animation, and the clients sees the server animation. The clients sees its own animation, but the server and other clients do not. It seems like the client is not "casting" the changing variables to the server and other clients. I got everything else up and running; walking, running, jumping, crouching, shield block, you name it! I have tried every solution I could find, but to no success...

I will provide screen shots of my blueprints below! All variables shown are replicated.




Thanks in advance!

Hey make sure who had the authority of your character. In most of the games in UE4 as the server spawns all the characters it has the authority over all the characters. Switch has authority node tells the who is the owner of that character I.e., who spawns the character, in most cases it is server as in general server spawns the characters. Your blueprints seems to be correct. I guess the problem is with the switch has authority node instead replace it with is locally controlled node if it is locally controlled then call a custom event function and pass a variable as parameter to the function that you want to set and also make sure that the custom.event is run on the server and variable is replicated and set the variable value you get from that custom event.
