View Full Version : (Resolved) How to Broadcast?
09-10-2010, 02:39 AM
Thanks for your time.
I have a custom controller class with a custom pawn class.
var myController c;
foreach AllActors(class'myController', c )
I receive no message.
Any idea why?

try WorldInfo.Game.BroadCast(self, "BroadCasting");

I actually modeled my broadcast off of the code in Worldinfo.BroadcastHandler.
The problem is that I need to broadcast data (sorry for the lack of clarity). The need for a message to display is just a debug state.
Any idea how to propagate data across all clients or perhaps, across a team specifically?

untested: (I'm just getting into it)
Make your own MessageClass (extend LocalMessage) and a MyDataObject and call:
GameInfo .BroadcastHandler .BroadcastLocalized (Sender,PC, MessageClass,Switch, PRI1,PRI2,MyDataObject)
That will fire the following function on every client:
PlayerController .ReceiveLocalizedMessage (MessageClass,Switch, PRI1,PRI2,MyDataObject)
And that uses static MessageClass .ClientReceive (PC,Switch, PRI1,PRI2,MyDataObject)
Then MessageClass.GetString() will be used to call PlayerController.myHud.LocalizedMessage()
... really interresting, nay? ;)
There is also a GameInfo .BroadcastHandler .AllowBroadcastLocalizedTeam() - may fit better in your case.
ClientReceive would be a good place to process MyDataObject. (That's why I would extend LocalMessage)
Just thinking about extending MyDataObject from a Info. (ReplicationInfo might be to much Replication)

Very interesting, and I appreciate your efforts in experimentation, but often I find that the simpler solution is the more effective.
Is there a "more standard" way to accomplish the simple goal of sending a variable to a group of players without needing it to be flagged as replicating?

That IS how it's done. If this information is relevant to all clients, extend PlayerReplicationInfo or GameReplicationInfo, etc

For anyone interested in the simplest way to do this:
local Controller c;
foreach WorldInfo.AllControllers(class'Controller', c )
The cast can be to anything really. I ended up using a custom controller class. Anything with ClientMessage will work.
