Forged object

Post by Barbie »

Recently I run the map MH-Horus on my server and got log entries like this:
ucc.init.log wrote:Forged object: got Function Botpack.GuidedWarshell.MoveRocket, expecting Class Engine.Texture
Forged object: got FloatProperty BarbiesWorld.KHMBase.SetPawnDifficulty.Difficulty, expecting Class Engine.Mesh
Forged object: got Function UnrealShare.ASMD.PlayAltFiring, expecting Class Engine.Mesh
(Complete log on PasteBin)
I've never seen such; what does that mean?

Incompatibility between the server's PackageMap with your PackageMap, caused by one package with matching generation but different name mapping.

The most important thing to figure out is what packages is MH-Horus loading that other maps aren't.

Yes, it's what Higor said and completions:
- package conformed should never have new classes and new variables involved else it will mock things as you can see... take this as evidence about a bad conformed thing;
- new functions are not welcomed as well;
- be careful at simulated/non-simulated in the new generation;
- package conformed should have all dependencies similar to old package - I messed up at a moment some "HauntedCreatures" (as a sample) so I went to conform them properly not pieces of package (think well here) - new thing was not calling some required sound and then client went to WC - game unplayable at all;
- package conformed should not call other things (packages) than MAIN PACKAGE conformed and it has to be exactly structured like original class.

You don't have to take these in serious - however, when I was ignoring these "nowhere-written-rules" I was badly screwing up, running something useless - nobody will play there EVER.

Summarizing:
- package conforming has limitations as you see;
- new generation should be fully COMPATIBLE with old generation else your conformed thing will be a myth;
- lacks of conforming can be completed by ReplaceFunction - non XCGE users, I'm sorry for you - fixing UT has come you should take it in account. Nobody will fix your Server better than yourself, Epic doesn't even care about fixing Ut'99 after all...

The log entries are from the server - so I guess that problem is independent from client.

Attached are screenshots of UnrealDeps.exe. I remember that UTChaosMap.u and Osiris.umx were new to my server.

Nah, errors might be resident in other location. Continuing example about "HauntedCreatures" my logs were saying something about whatever stock texture - FALSE alarm, it was nothing to do with the real cause. I gotta admit it was challenging to find issue...

This was "entertaining" for me too at a moment in a closer past. Do these have been solved ? These are definitely coming from a wrong conformed package. New package (whatever) has new stuff which stock (original) doesn't have and then by trying to align that to original compatibility array is getting badly screwed. There is no real problem with those maps, issues here are... server files. The friendly advice is to forget new variables and new functions because these net borks are coming from those "objects" conformed with "None" and then engine is moving to the next or whatever, this is definitely not the "how to" fix server, just saying...
