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 is the SetTimerForNextTick callback called on the same frame for a Client RPC?

Does anyone know why SetTimerForNextTick is called on the same frame inside a client RPC? I'm doing something like this:

 void AMainGameState::Multicast_DoGameTransition_Implementation()
     UE_LOG(LogTemp, Warning, TEXT("Frame outside: %i"), GFrameCounter);
     FTimerDelegate TimerDelegate;
         UE_LOG(LogTemp, Warning, TEXT("Frame inside: %i"), GFrameCounter);

...and the frame number is the same for both logs when called on a Client, but for a ListenServer the frames are different, as expected.

(What I'm trying to do is to instruct the clients to do a game state transition by capturing a screenshot of the current state and do a fade into the next. Since grabbing screenshots to use at runtime needs to be done inside the UGameViewportClient::Draw method, I need to delay logic until the next tick.)
