The verdict is in. No, not that one. Or that one. Or that one. That other one hasn't even started yet. Use the #Nvidia Studio Driver, not the Game Ready Driver. It has some weirdness occasionally, but it doesn't crash like the Game Ready Driver does. I'm getting work done, and that's scaring me. All of the tweaks I did had vastly less effect than changing drivers did. #UE5 #UnrealEngine

- GetWorld()->WorldType == EWorldType::Type::Editor : Sometimes its value is "EditorPreview"

- virtual void PostEditMove(bool bFinished) : Within moving in the world, bFinished is false.

PostEditChangeProperty? It has same problem. PostRegisterAllComponents? Same.

The solutions I found until now are:

- virtual void PostActorCreated() : Maybe this is what I had to find first. It is called only once within spawning in the world.

- HasAllFlags(RF_Transient) : If actor is temporary within being drag and drop from the contents browser to the world, this value is true.

Construction script in the Unreal Endine is evil. It is called very many times. If there is some other actor reference to have to communicate in the construction script, there is a risk to lose information when it is packaged.

OnConstruction is free to lose in packaging. But it is called very many times, too. When I drag and drop it from contents browser to viewport of the world, it is called 4 times. I had to find something different.

Today I've found myself an interesting bug to squish.

Sometimes, randomly, our road editor tooling manages to reference invalid objects.
But of course it doesn't crash outright, that would be too easy. It crashes later, when #UnrealEngine tries to show the referenced objects in the Details panel.

Soo, work today is going to be fun.

(Unironically, I love debugging challenging issues.)

I solved this problem by moving the actor reference storage container variable to the custom AWorldSettings, from engine subsystem.

It would have been nice if it had been like this from the beginning. I did not know well about the AWorldSettings at past. AWorldSettings is the first actor in the array of actors in the ULevel.

- In a place related to the actor's regeneration phase, such as the actor's construction script or OnConstruction,

- if there is process to write reference of actor that placed in the world, to outside of map, such as the engine subsystem,

- the GC check will fail in the process of the opening the map and the editor will crash.

Also, unlike rendering, I rarely see people talk about setting up a ground truth value in physics then tune settings towards their needs.

Does PhysX rely on realistic physical properties (which Unreal use)? If not, do you just set a value that feels right?

then I got AI working in 4 hours because excuse me what I just assign an AI controller and I'm done? What.

Here's a fun glitch I came across when messing with splitscreen.

Both player 1 and 2's viewports are drawn on top of each other, it's interesting to see what gets shown and what doesn't!

I can fix it by changing the character rot logic from being gated by "IsLocallyControlled" (which means it only runs on the client) to "LocalRole != SimulatedClient" (wherein the server's character will only update rot on the server, but the client's will do it on both)

But WHY. That shouldn't be necessary. The rotation being applied to the character should already be replicating up to server (and then back down as necessary if you have more clients etc). #UnrealEngine #GameDev

I have an #UnrealEngine mystery: what could make it so that a client logged into a server doesn't get their rotation replicated up to the ListenServer?

Client can move around normally and see the rotation of the character the ListenServer is controlling, but viewed from the ListenServer, the client's character doesn't rotate. Move, yes, but no rotation.

It's acting like rotation is only replicated server->client, and that's perplexing. #GameDev

I went from knowing nothing about #UnrealEngine to our entire prototype being networked in, uh, a week?

This is WILD. I've never used an engine like this before.

So I'm digging into #UnrealEngine networking stuff and

OH MY GOD IT'S FULL OF STARS

I can't express how rad this is compared to other engines I've used. Networking is abstracted enough that you're not thinking about packets or protocols, you're just, designing things. It replicates what you tell it, you just design the flow, and it ✨Just Works ✨ and I've never, ever, had this experience before with networking code.

Also there's one-button testing! It just, spawns the game in fake-network mode, with multiple windows, from the in-editor play button! With network traffic emulation! AND IT'S GOOD EMULATION OF ACTUAL BEHAVIOR UNDER LOAD! AAAAAAA

My blog/Patreon thing this month is on how health and damage systems work in Unreal: https://www.patreon.com/posts/81667122 with a bonus on how I do sword-swing traces: https://www.patreon.com/posts/82004308

Those are exclusive to my backers for the month, but check out last month's, which is public!

That one was on how you handle looping animation states that have play-once in/out anims, like a bird that folds/unfolds their wings as necessary when flying and landing. https://www.patreon.com/posts/79805028

Okay, #UnrealEngine question:

Is the best practice for whiteboxing levels really dragging in box geometry and scaling? I'm finding this really tedious, and stuff just never lines up just right.

This can't be the process, is it?

I've noticed quite a few games, like Grounded and Minecraft Legends, that seem to use Windows' text-to-speech API to read on-screen text.

If you're interested in adding it to your #UnrealEngine game, I made a plugin that simplifies the process.

y'all i got the dialogue (story) into the opening scene and ✨ IT IS SO BEAUTIFUL!! 🌌
i am proud of this work. lol screenshots don't do it justice... but look!
it switches between Bitsy and navigating the 3D environment. text is delivered in pieces... it's effective!

the closing scene with the eye, delivering the last set of dialogue. the eye is large and in a 2D animation style. it is surrounded with tiny stars.
a distorted glitchy forest is visible behind an animated gif of an eye. the gif looks like a button.
a Bitsy space is displayed on top of the 3D world. the surroundings are glitchy. there is a forest filled with dead trees on both sides.
as you approach the eye a void opens behind it. you can see stars in the void. the eye looks brighter, contrasted against the dark background. dead trees surround you. there are rays of light coming out from behind the dark void.

Finally got my March (I know I know) Patreon post done! It's on WING FLAPPING: https://www.patreon.com/posts/looping-with-non-79805028

Or like, any animation that has some kind of unfurling / non-looping intro animation, then you want to animate it doing a looping anim for (some gameplay-determined length of time), and then play a furling / non-looping animation to settle back into an idle state.

Each month's Patreon post stays subscriber-only for that month, but here's last months too which is now free! It was on the many ways of making in-Unreal tools! https://www.patreon.com/posts/78474192

Huh, turns out the "animate stuff in #UnrealEngine" they added in #UE5 is pretty killer?

today i finished assembling the last secret cave.
a poem is going to be hidden here... it looks beautiful and i love how the light turned out.
#ScreenshotSaturday #UnrealDev #UnrealEngine #IndieGameDev #IndieDev #IndieGame #UE5

A closeup of the giant skull with white iridescent teeth. The skull is black and looks like it is made out of crumbling rock. Giant roses surround it, growing from inside the skull. The Roses are blue and pink.
A giant rib-cage serves as the arch inside the cave, keeping the walls up. There is a small grave visible in the distance, behind it are light rays. A giant rock skull lays on the right, with large roses growing out of it.
A giant orange rose grows from the base of the giant rib-cage. The water it is growing out of is red. The cave is dimly illuminated by light coming from a cavern that is behind a grave at the right of the screen. The grave is marked with a concrete cross.
The entry to the cave. Through it you can see the giant skull and some ribs. Everything is made of rock, including the bones. Red roses are growing from the skull. There is light in the distance, just up ahead.

I wish #unrealengine had a single fundamental building block that allowed arbitrary nesting. There's actors, and actors can have components, but that's only two levels? What are components made of? Not other components.

The new MassEntity stuff is promising but it feels like a lot of hidden machinery moving underneath and around your code.

I miss the consistency and *feeling* of conceptual simplicity in the component model of React and friends. A single model that scales to fit most tasks.
