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"

Changing Visibility or Material always replicate no matter what

In my project, I got multiple characters controlled by players. One of them is the host and others are clients. In one of my clients, I execute an event locally. I added a print and I can see this event is only executed on this specific client. In this event I tried changing the material, setting a scalar parameter and setting a component to hidden or change its visibility. No matter what all of those apply on every player instantly. I don't understand beacause this is executed locally on a client, I made the choice to not replicate it so why does it ?

I found a post online about this very problem : https://forums.epicgames.com/unreal-tournament-3/unreal-tournament-3-programming-unrealscript/172748-how-do-i-make-actors-invisible-client-side-only-solved

But couldn't find a simple blueprint solution.

What I want is just put some blueprint code that will make something (an actor, a component, anything) invisible just for him and him only. That way I can make team based feedbacks in my game (ex: Ally player tag visible, minimap icon visible, etc. but can't ennemy because that would be cheating).

I also made a post on reddit : https://www.reddit.com/r/unrealengine/comments/9lmstc/setting_visibility_or_hidden_in_game_locally_on/

Thank you.

Does it help to make those elements be attached Actors that are owned by a specific player and then use the OwnerNoSee or OnlyOwnerSee checkboxes to control who sees them?
