    I don't see a way how multiplayer would interfere with loading paks.

    Do you mean asset loading hitches? Keep files small to keep loading times low.

    I think there is way to scan asset paths with the asset registry node in Blueprints/C++.

    Are you sure you are running this in a packaged build? Because it doesn't work in "editor only".

    Well unfortunately it seems i still l cant get my own BP's adding to the asset registry with this. Can a BP Asset not be added to the registry without a assetregistry.bin file?
    Was trying to avoid using the plugin packaging method due to adding to the end user complexity, instead im running a cook with a CMD Editor then packaging the related assets but it always gives me this after mounting
    Code:
    LogStreaming: Error: Couldn't find file for package /Game/Avatars/New/BP_Bader requested by async loading code. NameToLoad: /Game/Avatars/New/BP_Bader
    LogStreaming: Error: Found 0 dependent packages...
    LogAssetRegistry: GetAssetsByPackageName for BP_Bader:

    I just bought this and tested it, and was happy to see that BP_Test blueprint class was registered in the asset registry after download and mount. This was something I was struggling with for pak loading. I was going to try to make this work in a multiplayer game, and was wondering if you had tried this already? Would you have any reason to believe this wouldn't work, or any suggestions as to how to make it work properly with multiplayer? Wondering best way to minimizing any kind of hitches in a VR game.
