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"

Can a UObject send messages between the client and server?

Hi All,

So I need to send a string to my server from my client, after my client receives this string from a third party plugin. But this is all done outside of the player class, game instance, game session, ect. But I do have a UObject that deals with a lot of the API calls to this third party plugin. So is it possible to send a message from the client to the server by just using a UObject (that isn't a child of or derived from an AActor)?

Also I just thought that I could maybe create an actor specifically for messaging between the server and client, so I can use RPC's. Maybe that'll work, but I'm creating these UObject in a custom C++ class, that derives from IOnlineSession (which isn't connected to a UObject base) so I don't know if I can create an AActor without a parent? IDK let me know if ya think that's a good idea or not.

Thanks, London
