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"

The event must be replicated to the server, try the top of the command line because the rest will also be, if it is associated with a blueprint, the variables must be replicated and the non-replicated events should call the replicates.

Stack ->(Client) Client presses button ->(Server) S_TryApplyEffect ->(Server) OnRep_LastEffectUpdated() So data should reach clients

 void GetLifetimeReplicatedProps(TArray<FLifetimeProperty>& OutLifetimeProps) const

May not be relevant, but did you implement this in your base character for the necessary things that need to be replicated?

Found out that it just does not with my PC, but i have tried it on another PC, and there it works. I have deleted intermediate, binaries and saved folder with no change. Are there more caches/settings that i should look for? Maybe i should reinstall ue4?

Have you set bReplicates = true; on the AStatusEffect actor? I suspect it is an access violation crash meaning that LastAppliedEffect is NULL on the clients and the actor not replicating could cause that.

Yes, it's set on actor on creation and in constructor
