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"

Most basic setup required to get a net multicast function to work?

I've been trying to get a net multicast function to fire and I can't seem to do it no matter what I try. This is the setup I feel like should work, being run from an actor that just inherits from AActor and is being placed into the level:

These are the appropriate settings from the details panel:

I feel as though this should work and Did Multicast Work should be true on both the server and the client, but it seems to only be the case on the server. Why could this be the case?

NetMulticast on begin play will not work.

The reason for this is, that the object doesn't exist on your clients when it already exists on the server. That means there is no receiver object on your clients and they will not receive anything.

Put the multicast on a key event or something like that and it should work.
