If you look at the Third Player, and advanced driving content, you can replicate the clients because Player Character and Character Controller inherit a network interface that handles the player replications.
I am using a Pawn, and when I have two instances of my game, the Pawn becomes out of sync, or cannot see each other.
Does this mean I will always have to send my player transform to the server every second. My game mode will have 4-10 players. That means, 10 players sending their transform and rotation 60 frames per second, meaning bandwirth lag?
I don’t know now, Tom has a tutorial on blue print multiplayer use pawns, I downloaded his content and couldn’t get it to work.
EPIC have not announced, nor updated multiplayer help.
I am stuck, because I had a cool hover car I wanted to put together, where the game becomes bumper cars + CTF.
What do I do now, use a player character? Put a physics cube on it, and add force / torque locally? Is that possible.
For information, on object replicated, you can define the time they are replicated (once per second for example), but it you lower the replication time, you have to do lot of interpolation (predictive movement) on client.
For my mind, for movement, the known ratio, is 6 times per seconds.
what is the purpose, it to use third party server, to manage chat/connection? I think it is another topic
Be carefull, using PIE, you will use connection preset, and by default, there is internal mechanism for connection, done by PIE, and not done in your game, if you don’t program it!
So I preconize that you all launch with command line, to be sure of the right behaviour.
I ve made some article about third party management.
