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"

GameMode is NULL after game starts

Using 4.3.0

I am unable to reference the GameMode using GetWorld()->GetAuthGameMode(); It returns a NULL address AFTER the game has started. However, it returns a proper value before the map is loaded.

The game mode is set in my DefaultEngine.ini document as follows:

 [/Script/EngineSettings.GameMapsSettings]
 EditorStartupMap=/Engine/Maps/Templates/Template_Default
 EditorStartupMap=/Game/Maps/Example_Map
 bUseSplitscreen=True
 TwoPlayerSplitscreenLayout=Horizontal
 ThreePlayerSplitscreenLayout=FavorTop
 GameDefaultMap=/Game/Maps/Example_Map
 ServerDefaultMap=/Game/Maps/Example_Map
 GlobalDefaultGameMode=/Script/TimeIsUp.TimeIsUpGameMode
 GlobalDefaultServerGameMode=/Script/TimeIsUp.TimeIsUpGameMode

How can I make sure the GameMode is properly set when the map is loaded?

After further investigation, it looks like the player client is also calling for the GameMode which will result in NULL.

 GetWorld()->GetAuthGameMode(); 

Where did you call?

GameMode is only valid on the server. Are you calling this on the client?
