Detailed Description

template<class User, class Param, CryRmi::RmiCallback< User, Param > fn>
struct SRmi< CryRmi::RmiCallback< User, Param >, fn >

This is an intermediate class for RMI support in game components. It allows the game code to register remote invocations while preserving the type safety of the callback.

#include <CryEntitySystem/IEntitySystem.h>
#include <CryNetwork/Rmi.h>
class CMyRemoteMachineInvocationComponent final : public IEntityComponent
// Provide a virtual destructor, ensuring correct destruction of IEntityComponent members
virtual ~CMyRemoteMachineInvocationComponent() = default;
static void ReflectType(Schematyc::CTypeDesc<CMyRemoteMachineInvocationComponent>& desc) { /* Reflect the component GUID in here. */ }
// Define parameters that we will send with our RMI
// The SerializeWith function will be called once to serialize, and then on the remote side to deserialize
struct SJumpParameters
// In our example we will serialize a positional coordinate
Vec3 position;
void SerializeWith(TSerialize ser)
// Serialize the position with the 'wrld' compression policy
// This policy can be tweaked to only support the maximum size of a project's level
ser.Value("position", position, 'wrld');
// The remote method, only executed on the server
bool ServerJump(SJumpParameters&& p, INetChannel* pNetChannel)
// Client requested a jump, validate inputs here
// If successful, run jump logic on the server
// Use a type definition to simply registering and invoking the RMI
using ServerJumpRMI = SRmi<RMI_WRAP(&CMyRemoteMachineInvocationComponent::ServerJump)>;
virtual void Initialize() override
// Whether or not this RMI is to be executed on the server
// Otherwise it can only be invoked on clients
const bool isServerCall = true;
// Whether RMI is invoked before, after or independently from aspect serialization
// Attaching before or after aspects can increase packet size, favor NoAttach when possible
const ERMIAttachmentType attachmentType = eRAT_NoAttach;
// Describes the reliability type for packet delivery
// Reliable RMIs have significant overhead and should be used carefully
const ENetReliabilityType reliability = eNRT_UnreliableUnordered;
// Register the jump RMI so that it can be invoked later during the entity lifecycle
ServerJumpRMI::Register(this, attachmentType, isServerCall, reliability);
// Now bind the entity to network
// For the sake of this example, this function should be called when a player wants to jump
// If executed on the server, the jump can be handled immediately - otherwise an RMI is sent to the server
void RequestJump()
if (gEnv->bServer)
// We were already on the server, so the code can execute safely
/* ... */
// Client requested jump, invoke a remote method invocation on the server
ServerJumpRMI::InvokeOnServer(this, SJumpParameters{ m_pEntity->GetPos() });
