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"

You need to use GetLifeTimeReplicatedProps and use a variant of the DOREPLIFETIME macro while setting the UPROPERTY(replicate).

Does the server only run the event?

Yes? Clients can't replicate anything the server is in charge of setting things up for the clients to receive. Many things are setup at compile time as far as I know though.

Ok so when I make a property UPROPERTY(Replicate) I must use the getlifetimereplicatedprops to setup the property correctly?

Yes. I haven't seen a replicated property work without it.
