    You should definitely do a longer course on this, this video is probably the most helpful resource I've found on GAS other than the GitHub documentation page.

    Unbelievable how a 40min video teached me more than reading the docs for couple of months.

    You did a great job. Much love from germany!

    This is a very good video to get a basic grips on the system. I think I have watched it 40 times.. or more lol. Truly great video. Really helped me out Thank you. Good Job and thanks for showing the Link to the system on git. That was very Wonderful of you. With the simple steps, although differ from project to project. You should be able to pick out the basic steps or the First steps In Most ability systems. For Example ActionRPG by Unreal Engine 4. This video makes it very clear what parts are required to begin the system, then Like Reuben was say expand from there. Claps Claps

    If you created a comprehensive BP+C++ GAS and AI (BTs/EQS) multiplayer RPG tutorial I’d grant you a tower at Winterfell to pay for it. The use of these in conjunction and best practice around it is poorly covered. I expect it would be a massive hit on Udemy too

    I've been learning Unreal since Feb. coming from a software dev background. Building my first game and about to add more complex functionality. This is exactly what I need right now, so thanks for that! Some of that Macro stuff is well abstract, but at the same time I've come to accept these things as they are; boilerplate. Cheers!

    Hey this guide was awesome! But for some reason even if I duplicate the original character blueprint and put it in the world, I just can't get it to have attributes, any ideas why that is the case?

    Question. II'm confused. Is GAS mainly used only if you are making an online Multiplayer type game? It's just that I posted in edit that I wanted to make an offline single player RPG, and did I need to know C++ to do that or can I just use Blueprints and not touch C++ code. They said I can just use blueprints and I don't have to touch C++. Is that correct?

    23:54 One thing which developer should be aware with gameplay effects is: if you have an effect which is set to 'infinite' and the attributes it applies to are set to override, then any new gameplay effect which tries to add to those attributes will not apply because of that initial effect. I had this problem.

    I can't get why you Initialize Attributes on both Server and Client side.
    If the properties are being replicated, you should get the changes when the server changes them.

    I'm trying that in my project and is working, I always try avoid to change values on client side if them are going to be changed on server side.

    If someone suffers the problem that the attacking anim montage is not replicated, here is my solution. I am also learning the GAS too, so I don`t know it is the proper way. But is works.

    1. window > Gameplay Cue Editor

    2. Add New Gameplay Cue Tag

    GameplayCue.PunchAnim

    3. Add New GameplayCue Handler

    GC_PunchAnim

    4. Open GC_PunchAnim,

    override the function "OnExcute".

    Following is the pseudo code.

    funtion OnExcute()

    {

    if (MyTaget.GetLocalRole == ROLE_SimulatedProxy)

    {

    Cast MyTarget to ThirdPersonCharacter.

    Play Anim Montage (with anim montage asset "M_Attack") to Casted ThirdPersonCharacter.

    }

    return true.

    }

    5. Open GA_Punch and find the event "ActivateAbility" that you made.

    In between "Play Montage" node and "Wait Gameplay Event",

    place a node "Excute Gameplay Cue On Owner"
    .
    In that node, edit the Gameplay cue Tag to "GameplayCue.PunchAnim"

    It might work.

    i just finished a class on Udemy on GAS and it is really nice…i can share my class project file even update for UE4.26. it is not multiplayer but it will teach you almost all the basic systems but when explain i feel i still need to know a lot more. And a full class on Udemy will be really awesome..Come on Reuben …there is demand here :)))

    Hi! do you know if this would work with a third person example project instead of the project files that you give?. It would be to make sure that everything is made from scratch and nothing is missing

    i just not understood the debuff is applied the way he showed we did not hook it up the character or punch ability. To see the debug effect i added debuff at the end GA_Punch after Apply DamagetoOther actor then i added Apply Effect to ourself so that way everytime i punch someone my attack power is divided by half and comes back in 20 secs
    But the way i learned was to give each of those effects a tag and under GA_Punch register those tags..But anyway it was really nice to learn especially those lifesaver macros in c++ to set and get the attributes..thnks Reuben

    Do you happen to know why I can only trigger the punch ability once? I only have a Print String node in ActivateAbility and when I press the punch key, the print message displays twice and I can't trigger the ability again.

    At 24:20 you're applying the -20 damage to the player on Begin Play. However, the InitializeAttributes in c++ is run when the pawn is possessed. The pawn is possessed after the pawn has spawned and fired the BeginPlay already. In the video, I believe you are running in standalone so the timing still happens to work fine as no client/server communications are delaying anything. However if you are running as a dedicated server, the delay might be JUST enough that the damage is applied BEFORE the attributes are initialized and the damage will be overridden by the initialize. Just wanted to make a comment as this was something I ran into when following.

    thank you for the video. I did not get how can i shoot for example? I mean i can spawn a projectile and track the collision?
    And a question about the network. Is it possible to implement some kind of input prediction mechanism? How?
    Thanks a lot!

    Hey, this is fantastic, this helped give me a head start on understand how this system actually works. One thing I couldn't figure out how to do after watching many times, is getting abilities to be activated from one client, and it's effects be replicated to another client. In your system, a client's ability is replicated to the server, but doesn't replicate to other clients. I tried playing around with the settings, and doing a few google searches but couldn't come to a conclusion (yet).

    Does the Gameplay Ability code need to be changed to account for all clients, or is it a simple tick box or something I've completely overlooked, or does it go deeper than that? Thanks!

    Hey man, thanks for your tutorial, very helpful to get into it. I tried to do it without the Input Enum, so that an Ability can be triggered from the BP-side of the character. But it just won't trigger the Ability and ALWAYS returns false. It just doesn't want to activate the ability. Any ideas?

    Can somebody tell me how he is just pasting code into the project?
    He did it multiple times but here is an example: 8:36
    I'm sorry if this is something basic, but before this I only used Blueprints.

    According to the Tranek docs you linked, when the ASC lives on the pawn, the functions to override are PossessedBy on the pawn, and AcknowledgePossession on the controller. Am I misreading that?

    Edit: Did you have to use the Montage Anim Notify? My notifies weren't going through until I used that instead of the base class Anim Notify.

    Loving the videos, and thank you for creating them!
    One thing I would love to see for future videos / things that would really help people following along, pleeeeeaaaaaase, please, do the includes first.
    That way when manually typing and following along, there aren't a ton of issues with auto complete, and errors.

    Thank you for the time you put in to this. It's information that I'm having trouble finding. However, when I see at about 4.5 minutes in that we're using some base code my mind immediately disconnects and I think "ok, what parts am I missing to get to this point." You've been doing this for a while and you are doing pretty well, so I feel like I probably shouldn't be giving you advice, but, in general, with courses/tutorials you should always start with a blank project. Having assets in place doesn't distract much because most people will understand that those are just meshes to import etc, but when you have classes and header etc that you don't show how to bring in, it causes a disconnect. Maybe those classes are just that and they just need to be created, but maybe they needed to be generated somewhere so that they are properly registered; who knows. Just a suggestion. Thanks again for all the information.

    The tutorial starts off very erratic and confusing but then gets strong. The boiler plate may be boiler plate but is quite important if you want to do a lot of the tasks you did in blueprints with c++ as well. Overall, good tutorial.

    I mean I enjoyed the video… But there's only 15 to 20 minutes of c++ and everything else is blueprints haha… It's kinda difficult to unit test blueprints… It would be helpful if those could be done on c++
