Can i multithread in the game instance class?

class GAMESGROUPPROJECT_API UMyGameInstance : public UGameInstance, public FRunnable

	virtual bool Init();
	virtual uint32 Run();
	virtual void Stop();

	FSocket* mySocket;

	UMyGameInstance(const FObjectInitializer& ObjectInitializer);

	UFUNCTION(BlueprintCallable, Category = "Server")
		bool hasConnected();

	bool isConnected = false;



As you can see, virtual bool Init(); gives me an error.

How do I over ride this?

As error say, decleration needs to be the same and original function is returning void not bool:

also you should use override keyword, otherwise you will just hide parent function

virtual void Init() override;

Also this is not multithreading just overriding ^^’

I don’t think so never did multithreading on UE4, it should give you error duing building if thats the case.

Yo, thank you!

But I extend of FRunnable, and it requires to return an Int right?

Sorry, I meant, FRunnable`` interface means you must have

	virtual bool Init()
	virtual uint32 Run();
	virtual void Stop();

Stupidly the game instance class has a function called “void Init()” as well.

How can I target the interface Runnable, and not the base class Init.

Do you know what I mean?

As you know, the game instance class will persist from level to level, until the game is destroyed.

With this I can make sure my client will always be connected to my third party server.

But I need a run a thread, so it can listen on updates from the third party server.

Game Instance does not have a void onTick, therefore I can’t use that thread.
