hi guys i have a really wierd bug. Basically as the title says the animations randomly change and reverse themselves when playing over the network. What i mean by this is i have the following animations. Run forward, Run backward, Strafe left, Strafe right. On the owning players screen everything works fine. When i run forward it plays the forward animation , when i run backwards it plays the running backwards animation etc.
Howether on the other players version the animations are all wrong(sometimes Reversed, and other times completly different animations) for instance on one screen i am running forward yet on the other it is playing the strafe left animation.
Now the wierd part is the animations randomly change everytime i stop and restart the game. so lets say the first time on client 1 he is running forward yet on client 2 he is strafing left. then i restart the game. this time on client 1 he is running forward but now on client 2 (instead of strafing left like the first time) he is running backwards which is still wrong.
Any ideas people please help. i dont even know where to begin i thought movement and rotation was automatically synced/replicated ?? and i just dont get how restarting the game produces different animation syncs everytime.
here is a video demonstrating what i mean. in case its unclear
thanks for youre time
im an idiot. when i created the speed and direction variables to use in my blendtree i forgot to set there properties to replicated in the animation blueprint.
i thought this had fixed it but it only seems to have worked on one client. Do i need to do a multicast event or something with the variables to make both clients see the same thing?
ok another thing i have noticed is the animation bug changes depending on if i am running towards the player or away from the player. Eg on client 1 the animations are wrong if i run away from client 2 but work fine if i run towards Client 2 . Where as on client 2 the animations are wrong if i run towards client 1 but are fine if i run away from client 1. so im wondering if the error is how i am determining/ setting the direction variable??
