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"

Why StaticMeshActor is replicated but Actor is not?

Hi, i have an authoritative pickup system, basically a PhysicHandlerComponent attached to a Character, the functionality is very simple, when a player want to pickup an physic object he just send input to the server and server pickup the object, then the player can walk with it.

The problem is that if the object is an StaticMeshActor with replicates box and Replicate Movement box checked, the system works fine, but if the object is an Actor with a StaticMeshComponent attached whit the same Replication config that the StaticMeshActor, nothing happend, the Actor is picked on the server but not on the client side. So.. what is the problem? if an StaticMeshActor is a Child of an Actor...

@Jeff i think you should also link that address to UE editor crash (which still points to answerhub instead)

If you are using a actor with a component, make sure both are set to replicate. one of them isn't enough
