Useful Debug Commands:

  • Look at class ENGINE_API UCheatManager : public Uobject in CheatManager.h

  • ‘ToggleDebugCamera’

  • showdebug bones

Physics Replication:

Handling replication for an actor that is simulating physics on the client side is done in OnRep_ReplicatedMovement() in /Engine/Source/Runtime/Engine/Private/ActorReplication.cpp. If you follow the chain you’ll see the actual adjustments are done in ApplyRigidBodyState() in PrimitiveComponentPhysics.cpp. If you want to see how the server replicates the Actor’s properties take a look at ServerReplicateActors() in NetworkDriver.cpp and its call to ReplicateActor() in DataChannel.cpp.
